Higher Nationals textbook E-Library
Our eFlex library on HN Global offers learners the opportunity to rent a recommended resource: a low-cost way to access more of the texts they need, whether for revision or studying longer term. The pricing and access periods available are the same for each textbook, regardless of print prices.
Our Annual Programme Monitoring Review (APMR) for the 21/22 academic period will be open shortly. We’ll contact Quality Nominees directly once it is live. Once live, you will notice a shorter and simpler APMR.
