Enjoy Dawsonera ebook downloads for longer

Want to download a Dawsonera ebook? You can now choose whether to download it for 1 day or 2 days. Previously it was only possible to download for 1 day. Once the download period is over, you can download the ebook again if you need to.


The option to download for 2 days has been introduced on a trial period following feedback from users. Dawsonera ebooks come with a number of credits (uses) per year and each day of download uses up one credit. The ebooks@cambridge team will monitor the resulting credit usage, and may revert back to 1 day downloads if necessary.

Dawsonera ebooks can all be found via LibrarySearch or from the Dawsonera platform.

Please note that there are issues with display and functionality on the newly refreshed Dawsonera platform using Internet Explorer 8, which may prevent the option to select a 2 day download from appearing. It is recommended that you use a different browser, such as Firefox or Chrome.

If you have any comments or queries, please let the ebooks@cambridge team know on ebooks@lib.cam.ac.uk.
