eBook help

E-Books at Lavery Library

This guide will help you to search, find, and download electronic books. In addition, it will also direct you to information about e-reader software, audio books, uploading e-books to e-readers, and how to cite e-books.

There are currently approximately 160,000+ e-books available in the Lavery Library collection, and more are added monthly.

Most e-books are available to read online, while printing, copying, downloading, and audio features vary.

Most of the Library's e-books are protected by DRM (Digital Rights Management) systems.  DRM systems control the use of digital content, such as e-books. If you want to be able to download an eBook to a device, you will need to use special software. Two common DRM software applications for downloading eBooks are Adobe Digital Editions and the Bluefire Reader App for Apple devices.
