Essential Info for this Guide

E-books are available at the Sidney Silverman Library library!

What is an E-book? : E-books (electronic books) are full-text books in digital form that can be read on-line.  E-books are readable on computers, laptops, smart-phones, and e-readers.

Yes, they are books, you can use them in your research, and they are accessible remotely 24/7!

If you would like help finding e-books, please ask a librarian to show you how!

E-books on a variety of subjects may be found by searching the Sidney Silverman Library catalog.

Just look for the red e-book icon in your results.

Finding an e-book can be helpful when the print book you need is already checked out to another patron, or when you need to find information you can access off-campus.
