How to use this guide
Ebooks can be searched and accessed through the library catalog and through Supersearch. We provide access to ebooks from different providers and each provider has its own interface, rules, and policies. This guide will help you navigate the different interfaces and policies so that you can more easily use ebooks for your research. While you don't need to know the provider in order to find an ebook in our catalog, having this information is useful as you begin to use, print, and download ebooks.
To use this guide:
- Identify the ebook provider.
When you enter the ebook, the provider should be clear. In addition, the provider is identified within the ebook's catalog record, in the "Series" or "Other Author" field.
- Select the tab for that provider.
