The best way I found during both my BA and my MPhil was to scan the books myself either from copies in the university library, or my local public library or by purchasing my own copies.

Andy,

I am studying a degree in social work and about to enter my final year in
September. reading books in an accessible format has been a nightmare. The
best advice is to get the titles of books you require then go to the
publishers and ask for PDF formatted books. This is a legal requirement for
books published in 2000 onwards.  There is Psychology Press who will send
you via internet the titles you will need. But beware, most publishers send there books in several PDFs and are in the original printers number system.
This has been a very big problem for me.  I have bought the Nuance PDF
converter this summer as I understand this software will enable me to stitch
PDFs together, as yet I haven't tried it.  Good luck, and should any other
soul have alternative ways of accessing academic books I would be delighted
to if they would share them with me!

Hi all.

I'm starting a counselling course in a few weeks time and need to get access

to several counselling/psychology books from the rnib.

I visited their site this morning and cannot find a link to the Student
Library.

Can anyone please advise me of this and if possible a direct link to titles
on the above subject please.

Best wishes.

Andy.
