Go to the Library catalogue and search by keyword/topic etc. If there is an e-book version it will be indicated with “location internet” and a URL will be displayed. Different e-book providers have different download limits.

Thomson One is our primary source for analyst research but it will only work with Internet Explorer.
We have set up a trial access to analyst research through the Mergent Online database (any browser.) Initially until the end of June, this trial access is now extended until the end of July 2020. The analyst research content on Mergent comes from the same underlying dataset (Investext) that ThomsonOne uses, although there may be a few individual reports that cannot be accessed through Mergent.
