Find it! How to find resources at the library: Ebook Quirks - Every Publisher is Unique

How to find all the library things

Ebook Essentials

Unlike the journal publishing industry, where the pdf is a standard format for publication, with ebooks, each publisher hosts their content on different platforms.

Regardless of which publishing partner or platform the library does business with, most require individuals to create personal accounts in order to download ebook content. The library does not have any control over this arrangement. Please see the guide to each individual publisher to learn more.

Questions? Need Help? Contact the Library. We're happy to set up one-on-one or small group appointments to help you find and use information resources efficiently.
