Ebrary is one of the databases that is listed on our remote database access login page. It allows you to look at electronic books either on campus or off — which means you always have an extensive library at your fingertips even after the physical library has closed!
It offers over 45,000 online full-text books and other documents from over 220 leading academic, trade and professional publishers. The subject areas covered include Social and Behavioral Sciences, Health, Biomedical and Clinical Sciences, Engineering and Technology, Education, Humanities, History, Business, Physical Sciences, Economics, as well as Computers and Information Technology.
