Our e-libraries & academic services

Posted on 02/09/22

Virtual Libraries

Did you know DGHE offers seven different e-library options? We do!

We want to make sure all our students have free, easy access to the material they need to complete assignments, learn, and become the best professionals they can be. More than just offering platforms, we also have an in-house librarian for academic and learning support. Students who are not fully familiar with technology and online reading systems can reach out at any time and request print versions of the reading content necessary for their classes.

Why e-libraries?

You already know that we are all about making our student’s life easier. DGHE believes in study-life balance.

We know that our students need the flexibility to study from home, from work or even during their commute – so we partner with several e-libraries that provide thousands of journals, articles, books and magazines you can access from anywhere and everywhere.

For you to be able to access the exclusive content, you only will need to use your DGHE email! After that, they work just like any other research platform: explore the different categories and find specific books on the search bar.

Easy steps to access our e-books: 1. Access dghe.ac.uk/library-services and choose a e-library. 2. Login to the resource with your DGHE email and password. 3. Use the research bar and think of keywords that relate to the subject you need to study.
