Digital Books

Even though we don't have physical books accessible at the moment, we do have e-Books. Your librarian can help you locate appropriate books and provide links you can use in your Canvas courses to make it easier for your students. Here are a couple of methods you can tyr yourself.

Search It

We know Google is just about everybody's go-to search tool. However if you are looking for ebooks you can point out for your students, consider using Search It. For example, you might like to search for handbooks, which are a good resource for a subject overview and usually offer high quality summaries. If you can find a fairly current handbook, then you have state of the art coverage.

eBooks in the Databases

We have tagged our subscriptions that contain ebooks. You can find them all on the databases page, select the tag "eBooks".
