McQuade Library's growing e-book collection expands access to our books by letting users search for, browse, and read our books from anywhere on campus or beyond.
This guide provides information on how to make the most of our e-book collections. If you have any suggestions or comments about this guide, contact a McQuade librarian.
What is an e-book?
Quite simply, an e-book is a electronic copy of a book. Sometimes e-books are literal copies of the print book and other times the e-books offer additional functionality.
How do I find e-books?
E-books are intergrated into the library's catalog, which means they will show up in regular catalog searches alongside our print books.
Alternatively, you can limit a catalog search to only e-books by using the Format menu and selecting E-book.
You may also search our e-book collections individually using the links below:
