Ebsco e-Books can be searched as a collection or in our catalog or in Ebsco using the widget below. We have thousands of e-books in this collection. Note that when you view the text of an e-book in this collection, the computer "checks it out" and it will only become available for viewing after 30 minutes of inactivity.
You can create a free account in Ebsco that will allow you to checkout and download most Ebsco e-books to read on a portable device. You can check books out for varying times and choose different times for different books (up to one week for many). You can also check books in early if you are finished with one and are using Adobe Digital Editions to read it.
