Ebrary - Access to Electronic Books

The U of C community now has access to 20,000 electronic books through ebrary. Each of the books will appear in the catalogue but for now, I'll provide a direct link. You can search and read books in the ebrary collection without being registered but you will not have access to the enhanced features so I encourage you to register. If you have not access ebrary previously, you will be prompted to download the ebrary reader.

  1. Personal Bookshelf - allows you to keep track of the books that are of most interest to you.
  2. Searching - search the text within a book.
  3. Bookmarks - remembers the important parts of the book.
  4. Highlighting - highlight key words or phrases.
  5. Notes - add comments and thoughts to parts of the book.
For those interested, a detailed User Guide is available. If you have any comments about ebrary, let me know.
