Askews and Holts Library Services



VLeBooks is Askews and Holts eBook service for academic libraries, offering access to an extensive collection of new and backlist content; for teaching, learning and research, across all disciplines.

Designed for libraries, multiple licence options and hands-on eBook collection management tools ensure that titles are always available for users, particularly during peak usage times. Real-time usage reports keep librarians informed of user activity.

Instant licence activation provides a solution for urgent items, with comprehensive catalogue records, alongside API’s and EDI providing support for integrated purchasing and interaction with Library Management, Discovery and Reading List platforms.

With anytime access, users can either read online, using our newly enhanced and highly accessible online reader with many features which improve the reading experience, or download to a device of their choice.


Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA/PDA+)

Librarians can curate collections through our traditional PDA service or utilise PDA+ to manage the purchasing of reading list or research material.

Real time financial reporting and access analytics for each profile are available, which help librarians evidence both the financial and user benefits achievable through the service.
