What are eBooks on EBSCO?

 

eBooks at EBSCOhost, formerly known as NetLibrary, provides access to electronic books (eBooks), including reference books, scholarly monographs, publications of many university presses, and consumer books that have been converted into digital format. It is possible to perform full-text searches of a single eBook, search thousands of volumes simultaneously, browse topic categories, or read eBooks directly online.

Users can create a My EBSCOhost account in order to use personalization tools, such as creating lists of favorite ebooks in the My EBSCOhost folder.

Users can choose to view the titles online, or they may download and check out the book for a period of time. Many titles are limited to one user at a time; see the Why can't I view this ebook? FAQ for more information.
