Jyväskylä University Library - at the Heart of Campus


E-resource of the Month - April 2011

Dawsonera is an e-book service that allows the library to purchase a selection of electronic books title by title.  Until now the library’s e-book collection has consisted mainly of huge e-book packages that naturally also include material of little use for us. Dawsonera gives us the possibility to tailor our e-book collection to really meet the needs of our end-users.

At the moment there are 11 books in use on the platform, but more will be acquired in the near future. The Dawsonera service includes nearly 160 000 e-books, so we have quite a few to choose from! One aim in the future is to have more course reading available in electronic format.

Log in to the service with your University network username and password:

  1. Click on "Enter your institutional username and password" -Login.
  2. Choose Jyväskylän yliopisto from the dropdown menu
  3. Log in with your personal username and password.

On the front page of the service (eBook Catalogue) you will, as default, see all of the books in the database. When you clear the selection “Include ebooks available to preview”, you will see a list of only the books purchased by the library.

It is possible to preview books not yet owned by the library for five minutes. You can also make an acquisition suggestion or suggest books for a one-week rental (Request rental -link).

Printing limit is 5% of the book. Remote access via the NELLI-portal. You can find Dawsonera material also via JYKDOK Library Database.
