Kortext e-books

The Kortext platform allows staff and students digital access to etextbooks that the University has licensed, a list of the texts we have made available is provided below.

Kortext requires that all users are registered on their platform with their institutional email address in order to access and read the ebooks licensed. As part of the authentication process the Institution provides them with your University email address and the first time you use the platform you need to agree to the Kortext terms and conditions which includes information on how Kortext will use any personal data. Please do not use the platform unless you accept these terms.

So, to access Kortext etextbooks:

  • Click on the relevant Kortext url in the drop down menu below
  • You will need to login with your University username and password in the standard way (please note this works best if you are using the VPN). At this point the University authenticates access to the resource for Loughborough University registered users and provides your email address to Kortext  
  • The first time you use Kortext you will need to accept their terms and conditions of access which then automatically sets you up with an account on their platform
  • You should then be able to access the etextbook you require.
