Finding eBooks

Most eBooks can be found by searching the catalogue, they are marked as "Electronic Resource Material". To access eBooks click on the blue button that says "click here" and a new tab or window will open with the eBook.

To show only online resources (eBooks and online videos) select "Electronic Resources" as the library.

eBooks can also be found through the individual eBook platforms (EBSCO and ProQuest being the largest).

You can read online from anywhere by signing in with your library account or SLC.ME (see our off-campus access guide).

Downloading eBooks to read offline is a more involved process requiring multiple accounts and software. Many books also have the option to print or save as PDF a portion of the book (number of pages varies depending on title).
