Q. How do I access reading list books which are on Kortext?


Some reading lists have books which are accessible through a platform called Kortext. These are electronic textbooks and allow students to do a range of things like highlight and makes notes to aid studying. 

In order to access Kortext books you need to follow the digital book link on your reading list. The first time you try to access a book it will prompt you to register with Kortext. You will need to use your King's email address to register. It will then take you through to your bookshelf where you will see any books that you have access to, including the one you have just clicked on. This will also allow you to get the Kortext app so you can download the book and read offline. 

You can find additional support in the videos for students and staff, as well as further information on the Kortext support page.

Beyond this, please get in touch with library@kcl.ac.uk if you have further issues.
