Ebrary - Our large database of e-books

Ebrary Academic Complete is a 86,000 - and growing - collection of e-books which allows unlimited access to any book by an unlimited number of people simultaneously. Users can create personal bookshelves and use the highlighting, annotation or text-to-speech functions. Ebrary comes with dedicated apps for iPad, iPhone and Android devices. Users can also print up to 60 pages per log-in.


The possibility exists for a teacher to assign one Ebrary title to all students in a course and they will all have access to the same book.


Outright purchase of all Ebrary titles would cost over seven million dollars. With this broad coverage we essentially have an undergraduate college library at our disposal. (TIP: from Megan McCall: use Rewordify to simplify difficult reading passages.)
