E-book sites

AMBS library has access to two e-book sites. What you can do with an e-book depends on which site it comes from.

E-books in Catalog+

AMBS Catalog+ contains records for all AMBS e-books.

Clicking on the title or the View Online link will take you to the actual e-book.

Please keep in mind that Catalog+ contains only brief records for Ebrary e-books (limited to Title, Author, Publisher and ISBN). Robust subject searching is not possible with these records. 

Catalog+ includes full records for EBSCO e-books, enabling more robust searching capabilities.

 

Ebrary

All Ebrary e-books may be viewed on Ebrary's site via any web browser.

Remote access

Ebrary's site can be accessed remotely by entering your library barcode and first five letters of your last name when prompted.

Print a selection

You may print up to 60 pages or a single chapter. You may not print more than one copy of the same pages.

Download the whole book

For most devices, but not Kindle, entire e-books may be downloaded to your computer, e-reader or mobile device for 14 days. You have to first install Adobe Digital Editions, create an Adobe account, and activate your device.

Download a selection

You save selections of up to 60 pages or a single chapter as a .pdf and transfer it to your computer, e-reader or mobile device, including a Kindle.

Get the Ebrary App

The free Ebrary App is available for Apple and Android devices. You can use it to manage your downloaded books and search for new books to download.

 

EBSCO

EBSCO ebooks logo

All EBSCO e-books may be viewed on EBSCO's site via any web browser.

Remote access

EBSCO's site can be accessed remotely by entering your library barcode and first five letters of your last name when prompted.

Print a selection

You may print a selection from the book. Often, this is up to 60 pages or a single chapter, but the limits vary by publisher. You may not print more than one copy of the same pages. See this brief video tutorial for instructions.

Access Limitations

Many of the EBSCO e-books are limited to one user at a time. If someone else is using the book, EBSCO will display a message indicating you cannot access it because it is already in use. You will need to wait until 15 minutes after the other person closes the web browser where they were viewing the book. Out of courtesy to other users, please close EBSCO e-books immediately when you are finished reading them.

Download a selection

You save selections of up to 60 pages or a single chapter as a .pdf and transfer it to your computer, e-reader or mobile device, including a Kindle. See this brief video tutorial for instructions.
