Accessing and Using Ebooks

Accessing Proquest Ebooks

The Ebook Central database from Proquest contains the most numerous collection of ebooks within our collection. Generally this provider concentrates on multidisciplinary, liberal arts content. Titles can be found within our library catalog or the Ebook Central database.

While Ebook Central has a great number of titles, accessing the platform can be click-intensive. Hence, it is advisable to determine a preferred way of access. Within the platform there are two ways of accessing content. The easiest way is to use the "read online" option, whereby the user can scroll page by page without downloading the item to a personal device. The second way is to use the Full Download option, whereby the item can be installed to a workstation or mobile device for a limited amount of time.
