The library maintains a large collection of electronic books (eBooks) to supplement our physical collection. eBooks allow us to offer a wide range of materials, including some required textbooks, to our community without the restrictions that normally come with physical books.
It is important to note that we use several different vendors and not all eBooks will look the same or have the same features. Some vendors allow unlimited printing of the book, while others restrict it to a small number of pages. Generally speaking, we aim to ensure that all of our eBooks and eBook vendors are ADA compliant and allow access to the texts with screen readers.
Links to all of the library's eBooks may be found in our catalog.
You can also browse our eBook collections by access the following databases directly.

Materials that support courses are given first priority. Ebooks will be purchased where available and are given preference over physical copies. Please submit your request at least 90 days in advance to allow for processing and shipping.
