eBooks on EBSCOhost

Posted on by 0 comment

Looking for more electronic content at the library? Check out eBooks at EBSCOhost. You can come here to find full-text eBooks, especially useful if our physical collection does cover your topic as extensively as desired.

The new link on our website will take you straight to the eBook collection search page. Featured and highlighted items appear in a scrolling menu bar, similar to the way books are displayed on Amazon. Check out the subject categories on the left for easy browsing. Once you have selected a book, you have two options in the menu bar on the left side of the screen. You can view the eBook itself using EBSCOhost’s eBook viewer, or you can take a look at the detailed record, which lists the most relevant pages of the book based on your search terms. Take a moment to explore the icons on the right side of the screen, which allow you to do things like search for terms, create a note to save in a personal folder, and look up a word in the dictionary.

There are a few things to keep in mind when using this database:

-Currently our library does not offer download capabilities for these eBooks. However, the full-text version can be accessed 24/7 using the eBook viewer

-Up to 60 pages of an eBook can be printed/saved as a PDF from within the viewer. (Number of pages permissible to print may vary based on individual limits specified by publisher)

-Mac users might need to download a PDF Browser plug-in to access the eBook viewer

-This is not the place to go for extremely current information. The majority of the books were published between 1997 and 2004, so make sure you know exactly what type of information you need before looking here

-Fun fact: We have 87 full-text books written in Spanish on this database, including a few fiction titles from Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and H.G. Wells!
