If you need help finding an ebook, please check our FAQ page on searching the catalog: http://nu.libanswers.com/faq/41893

The Library offers access to ebooks from several different vendors, and each of those vendors' pages will look a little different. Here's some guidance for opening and navigating ebooks across some of those platforms.

If you need help with other ebook features, embedding content in classes, or doing research, get in touch with one of our librarians!

 

ProQuest Ebook Central

O'Reilly Safari Books Online

Safari's books can be accessed on your computer with a browser, or via the O'Reilly Safari app. You can learn more about the app on the O'Reilly downloads page.
