The platform includes sophisticated searching functionality, allowing students and librarians to find and download the content they desire easily and quickly.

Pickering & Chatto initially bring over 300 titles to the platform, these include A Political Biography of Samuel Johnson by Nicholas Hudson, A History of Emotions 1200-1800 edited by Jonas Liliequist, and The Body, Gender and Culture series.
These books perfectly complement the existing content available on University Publishing Online, which includes subjects across the areas of humanities, and social sciences, as well as science, medicine, and technology.
