In what has become a yearly tradition, we recently added a slew of new e-books from NetLibrary–2,186 is the precise number–to our e-book collection, which now exceeds 16,000 titles. These can be accessed from any location; when off-campus you’ll be prompted to log in using your college ID number and password. Some examples of new titles (click the image, then “View E-book” to have a look at any of these):
Curious enough to see the entire list of NetLibrary books added this semester? It’s here.
A few notes about our NetLibrary e-books:
- This summer they will be integrated into the EBSCOhost platform that powers most of the library databases–so it will be possible to search them together with articles. You can preview the new interface now. (The “NetLibrary” name will no longer be used.)
- You can read the books online, but you can’t download them to an e-reader, iPad etc. Click “Print” to create a PDF file of up to 60 pages, which you can print or save to disk.
- You may find when you click on a book that it is inaccessible because it is being viewed by somebody else; enter your e-mail address to be notified when it becomes available, or just check back later.
