A Guide to eBooks

A guide to finding and using eBooks for scholarly research, teaching, and reading.

EBSCO eBooks

EBSCO eBooks contains a collection of electronic versions of current scholarly and academic press books, as well as trade books for academic libraries. The Howard-Tilton Memorial Library's EBSCO eBook collection is shared with other libraries in a consortium called Lyrasis. This group purchase arrangement allows us to offer students and faculty access to more than 57,000 e-books, covering a broad range of disciplines, under short but renewable "borrowing periods." 

  • You may print or save to PDF up to 60 pages from an eBook. Some titles may have a lower page limit.
  • Most titles can be downloaded as a full book and checked out to you for 7 days. You must create an EBSCO account to utilize this feature and download Adobe Digital Editions. See Downloading eBooks to Mobile Devices for more information about reading a PDF or a downloaded book on a mobile device.
