Today I made a new friend, possibly one of the best friends I will ever make. It’s the start of a beautiful relationship that will undoubtedly last a lifetime. My new friend’s name is Libby. Libby isn’t like other friends though, as Libby will literally never leave my side unless I decide to leave her behind, or I forget to charge her. Charge her I hear you say? That’s right, Libby isn’t a person, Libby is an app! A library app to be precise. Maybe I should start from the beginning….
Libby is an ebook app which is sweeping the nation. Read second year history student, Rhiannon Limbert’s review of the product and how it can help you in your studies.
In the last year we’ve been accessing e-books like never before. This isn’t surprising, considering what’s been happening in the world. But even without Covid-19, academic e-books were making life simpler. They’re easily accessible from your own device, wherever you are. Not to mention they’re much lighter to carry and you can never return them late. However, we’ve heard from you that they weren’t as easy to access as you’d like… so we’ve been working on your feedback and given LibrarySearch a new look that will hopefully make those elusive e-book links a bit easier to find.

Library accounts are created for all CCCU users in LibrarySearch, where you can log into your account and access e-resources. Occasionally technical difficulties may cause a delay in the creation of library accounts. If you should find you are one of the users affected, you can still access e-resources via LibrarySearch without actually needing to sign in to LibrarySearch. Please read on to find out how.
