ebooks @ the library

We offer electronic books through several collections, including: ebrary, Ebsco, ListenAlaska, Gale Virtual Reference Library, and Springer.

To search for ebooks available to UAS students, go to the website of either the Egan Library or the Ketchikan Campus Library, and click on WorldCat.  Enter your keywords in the search boxes, and limit your search by clicking in the boxes below labeled "Internet Resources" and "Items in my Library".  From the results list, you will be able to link to the ebook you select. 

The way you access, read, and use the ebook not only depends on what collection the ebook comes from, but also depends on the licensing model put in place by the publisher of the book.  We would like your ebook experience to be positive. We also recognize that with so many collections, publishers, and models of ebooks, plus the number of different computer configurations, there is a potential for frustration.

We hope this guide will answer most of your questions about accessing and downloading electronic books through the Egan Library.  Please contact us if we can assist you with these or any other of our collections.
