You read, we buy! Over 2,400 extra Maths and Statistics e-books available for 12 months

Until October 2018, you have access to over 2,400 additional maths and statistics books from Cambridge University Press.

They are available to all Kent students and staff.

At the end of this period, we will buy the books that you used the most and they will become a permanent part of the Library’s collection of e-books.
