eBooks

The ESC Libraries subscribe to thousands of ebooks: electronic copies of books stored online, also called online books. Users can download eBooks to a PC, Mac, laptop, or PDA. eBooks have numbered pages, table of contents, and pictures and graphics, just like print books. Advantages of using eBooks include the ability to electronically search the entire contents of a book, and instantaneous access at any time and from any place. ESC students, faculty, and staff can access eBooks from the Libraries’ online catalog and subscription databases.
