Help Topic: User Guides

With a wealth of features designed to help you find and use content, share and interact with friends and colleagues, and personalise your account, there's more to Cambridge Books Online than meets the eye. To help you understand these features, we have created a range of comprehensive user guides.

You can choose to view these as interactive presentations, allowing you to click forwards and backwards through each chapter at your own pace and convenience. All links within the presentation are clickable, allowing you to jump directly to the web pages you need.

Alternatively, you can view these user guides as traditional videos, giving you detailed instructions to help you benefit from the range of features available to you. You can view these on our YouTube channel or, if you do not have access to YouTube, on our Vimeo channel .

You can also view these guides in Spanish here.
