eBook Resources Update

All you ever wanted to know about eBooks and MORE!

RILINK's collection of shared eBooks, called BookLynx, is available for all member schools. Students, teachers, and parents have access to titles in this collection through computers and mobile devices. Each librarian chooses titles from BookLynx to add to the local school's collection and can add eBooks and audio books from other resources as well. Check the Follett website for more resources.

Ebooks are also available through AskRI's subscription to World Book. Find them at AskRI.org or upload a range of eBooks into your library's catalog. You should not need a username and password to open these eBooks.

What do you do if you can't get to WorldBook resources without getting asked to log in? The state of Rhode Island’s World Book Online subscription is Geo-Authenticated. If you are being prompted for login, it means your ISP is "outside" of the state of Rhode Island. If you can't get to WorldBook resources from home or school, in Rhode Island, the URL below will use your browser's GPS to allow AskRI to verify that you are in the state of Rhode Island and will automatically authenticate your access.
