The library offers access to electronic books through several providers. All the books are in the library's catalog, or you can search directly in the vendor's interface.
Search the library's catalog or go directly to SpringerLink. It is difficult to limit to our holdings, but if we have access to a title you will see a green icon.
You can download the PDF of any book chapter and print, save, or send to your mobile device. You are not able to download the entire book at once, but you can search the full text to find the chapters you need.
Click on the title you want, and scroll down to the item information to get the link to the content. Click on HathiTrust Digital Library to link to the content.
Once you’re in there, you can search for the exact content you want, or flip through the pages. You can download a page at a time. You won’t be able to download the whole book from HathiTrust, but since many of the books are also in Google Books you can download it from there.
Due to contractual issues beyond our control, HathiTrust doesn’t always link directly to the Google Books version. Wherever possible, the library catalog itself will link you to the Google Books version, or you can search Google Books directly.
If you want to check out and download an EBSCO eBook (rather than reading on screen), you have to follow a few extra steps. You only have to do the initial set up one time.
