Due to the current restrictions in place due to COVID-19, the Library has added a range of new electronic books (e-books) to the Library collection.  As we recognise that AFBI staff may not be working on-site currently, our new e-book purchases will ensure that AFBI Library users can access our most-recently added books from home, on-site, or wherever an internet connection is available.

E-books that have recently been purchased by the Library are included in the list below.  You can access them by clicking on the title, choosing the ‘AFBI Online Resource’ link, then entering your AFBI Library username and password.  You will then be taken to the publisher platform in which the e-book is hosted.

For print books, there continues to be a temporary arrangement in place for borrowing print books, due to COVID-19.  If you wish to borrow any print books, please click here for further information, or contact us at
