The EBSCOhost eBook Collection allows users to set up personal accounts, create their own bookshelves, and save annotations and notes.
eBooks can be accessed through the library's online catalog and using the "Limit To" drop down menu on the left side of the page to select Electronic Books. You can also search the databases directly throug the eBook links available on the Articles and Databases page. Tutorials can be found under Tutorials and Guides.
