What is an E-Book?

An e-book is the electronic version of a printed book. E-books are:

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