More Help

The Library buys and subscribes to both individual eBook titles and collections of eBooks available to campus-affiliated users and members of the public using public-access computers in the Library. Those eBooks appear on various platforms--such as ProjectMuse, eBook Central, and Oxford, but you can find eBook titles using the Library's main search tools, Start Your Search and OskiCat.
