Electronic Books NetLibrary Ebrary
  • Our book collection includes 70,000 books that
    arent on the shelf they exist electronically,
    via two collections NetLibrary and Ebrary
  • Both are available off-campus
  • NetLibrary requires account creation ON CAMPUS
  • Ebrary is accessed like the databases
  • When you search the Catalog, these collections
    are searched, but you can search them without
    searching the Catalog

NetLibrary Account Search
Remember create your account while you are on
campus!

Ebrary
  • Ebrary can do a few things NetLibrary cant do
  • Highlight text in the book
  • Add stickies to the pages
  • Read to you
  • Generate citations for your bibliography
  • Youll need an account to keep records of
    highlighting, stickies, and search histories.

Ebrary Account Creation
Remember only create an account to use Ebrarys
cool features. Logging in to Ebrary is like

    from real newspapers, journals, and magazines

    article (this is called full-text) some dont
    provide full-text
