How to use eBooks available through the library

Welcome

iPads and Androids and Kindles... oh my!

If you are using a device such as an iPad or Fire to read eBooks, you'll want to use the app for each service (Overdrive, Libby, Ebsco eBooks). 

A tablet or phone is not required! You can also read most eBooks on your computer. 

eBooks in the OCLN Catalog

Searching for eBooks in the catalog is easy, but there are a few interesting things you should know about format.

When you select the format eBooks, your results will be all eBooks from OverDrive.

If you want to include the academic eBook collections that we have through EBSCO, Gale, Infobase and Salem, you will want to also select Electronic Resources.

Interested in audiobooks? Select the format eAudiobook to include them in your results.
