The J.W. England Library is pleased to announce a major expansion of our e-book offerings through the addition of EBSCO’s eBook Collection. Effective immediately, several thousand e-books across a variety of subjects are available to USciences students, faculty, and staff. This e-book expansion is part of a consortial pilot program undertaken in cooperation with other academic libraries.
Members of the USciences community can access the new e-book platform through the library’s website. A link is posted on Databases A-Z, called eBook Collection (via EBSCO), and there are additional links on each of our “Resources in Your Major” guides. Just look for the “Books & e-Books” box.
Finding e-books on the platform is similar to searching for articles in our other databases. The eBook Collection gives you options for browsing, basic search, and advanced search. E-books can be read onscreen or downloaded to the user’s computer or e-reader. Instructions for downloading the e-books are posted on our new “Find e-Books” guide.
We hope you enjoy using this new collection of books in your academic and personal pursuits. Should you have any questions about using the e-books, please contact us via Ask a Librarian. You can also send us comments or suggestions using our online Suggestion Box
