Welcome to the Libraries' electronic books, or e-books guide. This guide is meant to help you learn more about e-books. If this guide does not have the information or guidance you are looking for, do not hesitate to Ask A Librarian for help at any time during the Libraries' service hours. For your convenience, a chat box is located on the left hand side of this page.
Due to licensing agreements with publishers, access for academic libraries to scholarly e-books varies greatly. Some e-books may be downloaded to mobile devices; others may be downloaded one chapter at a time. Some limit the number of chapters that can be downloaded and many may be viewed on computers and mobile devices using a web browser.
Our libraries have purchased electronic access to tens of thousands of e-books and the number continues to grow. Scholarly e-books provide a wealth of information that is accessible online.
