The library provides access to over 400,000 book titles supporting all areas of study and research at Bond University. Most of these titles are ebooks with searchable content and accessible 24x7.
Physical books have automatic renewals, and can be requested "Click & Collect". Or you can request digitisation of a chapter for online delivery.
To discover books use Library Search.
Use the "Content Type" options to refine your search results to show only books and/or book chapters.
If you want to find only ebooks, click "Available online" after you’ve searched.
To find a book on the shelf, take note of its location and shelf number in Library Search. The shelf number will look something like this: RC123.654.

When viewing your results in Library Search check the "New to the Library" facet to limit results to recent acquisitions.
Subscribe to the following RSS feeds to get weekly updates of new books received in the Main Library or Law Library.
Or open the feed link in a browser that supports RSS or has RSS browser addons/extensions.
Check for instructions specific to your RSS Feed Reader as each reader may have different instructions for subscribing to feeds.
If there is a book in the RSS feed that you are interested in and it's not available on the shelf you can sign in to Library Search to place a Click & Collect request.
Books are easy to find on the Internet as there are many reputable sites selling books and eBooks. Most scholarly books require purchase unless they have been published as an open access work or their copyright has expired. Bond students and staff can save money by checking Library Search first.
Google Books and WorldCat are good options for finding books. If you need a book that is not available in the Library, you can request the item to borrow from another library, or for recently published books you could suggest it for purchase.
