Find E-Books

What do I do when I can't check out a book?

Although our print collections are unavailable until further notice, we currently have online versions of approximately 43% of our collection.  Here are your options:

  • Search for ebooks in the Library Catalog to see what we have purchased electronically.  Some ebooks allow multiple people to access them at once.
  • Search HathiTrust for scanned copies of books we have in our print collection.  Only one person may access a copy at a time, just as though it were a print copy.
