New Books24x7 Interface

The CityU library’s Books24x7 database has a new look & feel!  Please note that our old site is still accessible if you would like to export titles that you saved to your personal Bookshelf.

  • Can now download chapters (called “Chapters to Go”) – look for the “down arrow” icon
