eBooks are a fantastic resource for students far from campus, night owls and those who work full time. Access them from anywhere, 24/7. EBL requires you to create a free account. We recommend creating accounts for eBrary and EBSCO eBooks, as well, as you can use your account to save books of interest to a digital book shelf.
For eBrary and EBL, your computer requires Adobe Reader to display the book. This is a free Adobe product. Additionally, Adobe Digital Additions will allow you to download and read the book offline for a period of time. It will also facilitate the transfer of eBooks to a digital reading device, such as a Nook or Kobo. Kindles are not supported at this time.
Note: Your EBSCO eBook Library account is the same as your My EBSCO account. You need only create the account once to save information from any EBSCO database.
General Databases are a great place to begin your research. They are multi-disciplinary, so while you may think your topic deals with sociology, you may retrieve helpful results from the field of political science! Get a feel for how the research is shaping up and take your findings to the topic specific databases to find even more information.
