Accessing Library Ebooks

Accessing Library ebooks is really easy! If you come across an ebook you would like to read click the View Online button. For Ebook Library titles, you are asked to login with your network username and password. This is so it knows who you are and will only ask once per browser session.

Searching Inside Ebooks and Downloading

In addition to using the Library's main search box, you can also go directly into ebook databases like ebrary, eBooks on EBSCOhost, and Ebook Library. This allows you to search inside the eBooks in each database. 

Most of the Library's eBooks can be downloaded for offline reading. The process is slightly different depending on which database provides the ebook. See the specific tabs of this guide for directions.
