Ebooks and Books

When you look at information in books you don't have to read the whole book - often a chapter on your topic can be the perfect resource.

If it's an EBOOK you will be able to look at the full text of the book online.  Look for links on the page to the  "PDF Full Text" or it may say "Read this eBook Online," or you may have to click on the title first and then look for the links to the fulltext.

Clicking on the BOOK title allows you to see the Contents pages in the books, but not always the full text of the book.  Some books are only available in paper copy.  You can complete a Delivery on Demand Request to have access to these items. OR note the title and phone the library to find out how to get the book.
