The AWRI Library has recently expanded into eBooks and developed a purpose-built collection for the Australian grape and wine sector. Access to this collection is available via the AWRI Library homepage to all Australian grape and wine producers that pay the grape research levy, the wine export charge or the wine grapes levy. AWRI website login details are required. If you’re not already a member, sign up for an account here. If you’ve lost your password, click here to retrieve it.
With an emphasis on current and practical resources, the collection currently holds 32 titles with topics including winemaking, marketing, vineyard management, pest control and more. These titles are available to read within an internet browser, but eBooks can also be borrowed and downloaded to a computer, mobile phone or tablet/iPad. A guide to using the collection is available from the AWRI website here.
On Tuesday, 2 December the AWRI is hosting an instructional webinar on how to use the collection. Attendees will see a live demonstration and be provided with an easy step-by-step tutorial on accessing the collection, searching for eBooks and downloading titles to both computers and mobile devices. Register here to attend.
For those already comfortable with eBooks, the collection can be accessed immediately via the Library homepage.
