About E-books

Everett Library subscribes to several collections of e-books which encompass a wide range of reading and scholarly material.  Fiction, non-fiction, biographical information, academic works, and more are to be found within e-books today. 

You don't need a handheld device of any kind - Kindle, Nook, iPad, smartphone, etc. - to take advantage of these collections; you can download them to your computer or email them to yourself.  Faculty may also link directly to an e-book title from their web or Moodle pages.
