Once you’ve logged into Kortext (find out how here) you will find your books in your library and be able to search for other Kortext titles. All books are available for offline reading for the duration of our subscription.

 

Making notes 

When the textbook is open on your screen

  • Highlight the text that interests you and a pop up box will appear 
  • Choose the colour you would like your text highlighted in
  • Choose Create Note
  • Type in your text
  • Choose Save

To see all your notes choose the notes icon on the left hand menu.  

You can also share your notes via email and OneDrive.

 

Printing pages

It is possible to print some pages from these etextbooks. Publishers will set a limit of how much can be printed and Kortext will let you know how may pages you have left in your print allowance for each book you have used.

Once you have opened the eTextbook on your screen, there is a printer icon on the left hand side toolbar.

 

Downloading the whole book 

To download the whole book, you will need to use the Kortext App on your device, from here you will then be able to access the book and read it when you are offline.
