eTextBook Information

eTextbooks...ready when you are

eTextbooks have been provided by Plymouth University for core reading to the majority of year one students.

Unlike regular e-books available to all students on the Primo library catalogue, eTextbooks are:


  • Free personal copies of core reading texts
  • Accessed from module sites in the DLE
  • Accessible from your DLE while in year one (if not downloaded in year one, access is lost)
  • Available in perpetuity once downloaded to your VitalSourceBookshelf account



For 24/7 help, video tutorials, and information on downloading the VitalSource Bookshelf app to your device, please visit and click on ‘Download Bookshelf’ in the centre of the screen.

For enquiries regarding eTextbooks please email
