Starting this fall, Milne Library is pleased to offer ebooks on demand from EBL, a vendor specializing in scholarly and popular books. The current collection has access to over 5,000 titles, with majority of content published between 2011 and 2012. Publishers include: Ashgate Publishing, Blackwell, John Wiley & Sons, Princeton University Press, McFarland & Company and several others.
To access ebook titles, students, faculty and staff need only search GLOCAT+ for subject of their choice, then limit by Show content type to “Book/eBook”.
Once you have a list of results you will see a link for Full Text Online. Click.
The link will take you to a drop-down menu where you will select SUNY Geneseo from the list of selected institutions.
On the next screen you will see information about the book title you selected; click Read Online and your table of contents for the book will appear.
As with print books, a loan is required before access to an ebook can be made available for an extended period of time.
Borrowing a book will activate full text access for the length of the loan (in most cases 1 day or 7 days) and enable you to copy and print from the books.
Note: To continue accessing the ebook once a loan has expired, simply create or request another loan as you did your initial loan.
If you want to download a title to your e-reader or computer, click on the Download tab on the lefthand menu; you will need to have Adobe Digital Editions installed for downloading content.
Read and enjoy!
Please contact Kate Pitcher, Collection Development Librarian, if you have any questions or comments about the ebook collection.
