eCollections Support

Hamilton City Libraries have an ever-expanding collection of electronic resources for you to enjoy - eBooks, audiobooks, eMagazines, eComics, online newspapers and more. Our electronic collections are made available through a number of platforms and are accessible using a variety of devices. To make use of our eCollections, you'll need to install specific apps on your mobile devices and, in some cases, install additional software on your home computer or laptop. If you require technical assistance, the resources below are a great place to start.

If you can't find a solution using these resources, please contact the Hamilton City Libraries Digital Team with a description of the issues you're having and we'll do what we can to help.
