Electronic Books

The Library provides access to over 125,000 electronic books through two databases, called ebrary and eBook Collection.

Most of the books are indexed in Primo (the Library's catalog), but you can also search the databases directly, which allows you to search the full-text within the books.


To view a book off-campus, you'll be prompted to log in using your Husky ID.
