E-Books Trial

DML has arranged a trial of an e-books collection from the Bloomsbury stable. Bloomsbury have grown to become a major theological publisher.

Click here to access the trial.

From any page opened, click “Collections” at the top of the screen to go to a list of available Bloomsbury collections. For the purposes of the trial DML has arranged access to the collection, “Christology Archive”. “Bloomsbury Open 2013” and “Bloomsbury Open 2014” are also accessible.

Click “View all titles in the collection”.

Please send feedback on your view of the usefulness of any of the Bloomsbury collections – discoverable on the “Collections” page - and/or Bloomsbury’s presentation of their e-books, or your experience of using them, to Stephen (sconnelly@dml.vic.edu.au). Any feedback will be useful.
