What is an E-Book?

An E-book is the electronic version of a printed book. E-books can be read on a computer or sometimes downloaded to a handheld device.

E-books are:

  • convenient
  • accessed online from a computer with an internet connection
  • available 24/7 and easily located using the Library Catalog
  • easy to navigate - use the table of contents to quickly get to the section you need
  • searchable - you can search the text of the book to find information
