  • If you are studying remotely then you should first check to see if you have an online reading list. This will usually include links to any digital readings including e-books, e-journals and any chapters or films which the Library has digitised for you.
  • When you are searching our collections you have the option to refine your search to e-resources or e-books by ticking the relevant options under the search box. Your results will show all the items we have available to you online
  • If you require one chapter from a book or 1 article from a journal issue which we only hold in print then you can request we scan this for you, e-mail the details to library@st-andrews.ac.uk 
  • If there are any book titles you wish to recommend for purchase by the Library in electronic format please e-mail us the details at morebooks@st-andrews.ac.uk
  • Library staff are happy to advise on how best to find alternative digital resources to support your studies. E-mail us details of your topic and what you would like help with and we'll get back to you. Alternatively we can arrange a one-to-one appointment with you on Teams to look at some of our online resources.
