Dear Reader, now you can decide which e-books will be bought by the Library! You can choose from the 200,000 titles of e-books offered.
The University of Warsaw Library has launched a new service – Demand Driven Acqusition (DDA).
Every month the Library will allocate a certain amount of money from its budget for buying e-books in the DDA service.
To view the collection of e-books available for purchase, select the E-book tab located on the Library’s main website and enter any word in the Search bar. You can search for e-books by title, author or keywords.
The red button next to an e-book title: – means that it is not yet owned by BUW, but will be purchased automatically by the Library if one of the following conditions is met:
- if you download the entire e-book,
- if you display it for over 10 minutes,
- if you open over 10 pages,
- or if you print, email, copy and paste part of a page from an e-book.
You can use the above options after logging in to your account on the EBSCOhost platform.
Before buying, we recommend that you review the content of the chosen e-book in Google Book Preview .
If you are convinced that the certain title should be in a permanent BUW collection, press the button
Access to the text is possible only for one logged-in, simultaneous user. However, you can make reservation for the e-book being currently used. You will be informed by email when the book is available.
Attention! Other e-resources, including e-books already purchased by the Library, can be found through the Multi-search tool as well as through Online Resources.
