Ebooks, Print Books, or Articles?

Where do YOU head when your teacher says, "Find reliable information for your research."

I Love Ebooks!

  • Ebooks are books from publishers. They are written, edited, and produced with the same standards that are used for the print book, but the Ebook is delivered electronically instead of in print.
  • We have over 100 Ebooks in our Library Catalog that were purchased for subjects and topics that you are studying this year in your classes.
  • Ebooks are great (and sometimes even better than print books) for research because you can search for subjects and keywords throughout the book.
  • You can copy and paste the author, titles, publisher, etc. into an electronic citation tool like Citation Machine or Son of Citation.
  • You don't need to worry about losing the Library book or returning it on time. When you finish, the book is returned automatically.
  • You can decide at midnight on Saturday to look for and use an Ebook. They are available 24/7.
  • Ebooks aren't heavy--they don't add addition weight to your backpack.
