Information about a recent update

We've had a number of queries from uLIBRARY users about the most recent update.

iOS requires a clean installation

Due to intermittent crashes upon updating the uLIBRARY app to the latest version, we recommend that iOS users perform a clean installation of the platform.

Browser download function

U-library are no longer able to allow downloads from the website due to Digital rights Management (DRM) and contracts with their publishers, therefore they have now integrated a web player. This means borrowers have faster and easier access to our purchased titles and we can now offer a much larger range of titles to our customers.
