There are two ways to find and use ebooks.

  1. You can go directly to an ebook from the library catalog.
    • E-books are identified in the catalog by an icon which is a blue book with an "e" on the cover.
    • You can get to the book online by clicking the View Now button.
  2. Or, you can go to our Online E-Books page and choose to look a a list of books for a particular e-book vendor.

If you are off-campus: You will be asked to enter your ACCeID and password to verify that you are a currently enrolled student.

If you need additional assistance, please call or visit our Ask a Librarian page. Hours and phone numbers can be found on our Locations & Hours page.


No, you don't! Our e-books can just as easily be read via your phone, tablet, or computer browser. While viewing titles online, you can search their content, turn pages, and print -- all without having to download to your device. Downloading can be helpful if you wish to view a title offline, i.e., you wish to read an e-book without having to use the Internet, WIFI, or data to access.
