Taylor & Francis eBooks now on Myilibrary

Following the sudden (but not unwelcome) demise of the Taylor & Francis eBooks platform, our 6,600+ Taylor & Francis eBooks are now available on the Myilibrary platform. We have received a new set of catalogue records and we have also been able to activate them in SFX / find it @ liverpool so that they can be reached via Google Book Search and WorldCat. As with our other Myilibrary eBooks, we access these books via UK Federation login both on- and off-campus. In practice this means that the first time you access one of these books in a session you will be prompted to login with your usual (i.e. Managed Windows Service) username and password.

Note that for a long time we have had trial access to a large number of T&F eBooks, but this access has now ceased. Actually, we have been able to keep access to the best-used of those titles (47 of them) and these will appear in the catalogue (and SFX) next week. If you find that you cannot access a title that you have come to depend on just get in touch and we should be able to purchase it to restore access within a day or two.
