eBooks at Lavery

Lavery Library has access to tens of thousands of academic eBook titles--over 160,000! The majority of our ebook titles are available for multiple users to access simultaneously and could be downloaded simultaneously to multiple users, as well. However, there are many cases where only one person may view or download an ebook title at a time. This is due either to publisher restrictions or library purchase agreements. If you experience problems, wait and try again later. If you still experience problems, contact Kate Ross or Ben Hockenberry.

Can I Download?

If you are a currently registered Fisher student, faculty, or staff, you can access our eBooks and download them to a personal or Library eReader. You can also download them to a computer or laptop.  eBooks can be “checked out” and downloaded to your computer, or transferred to devices such as an  iPad using Adobe Digital Editions. At this time, Lavery Library provides limited access to titles for Kindles. This is due to licensing and compatibility issues with Kindle books.
