Q. What is an eBook?


Ebooks, or electronic books, are books that are stored on the computer and can be read by any student with an internet connected computer.

Ebooks contain the same content as the related print book, and should count the same as print books when your instructors ask you to use a book as a source for a paper.

In the library catalog you will see the notation [electronic resource] in the catalog record, alerting you to the fact that it is an Ebook. You can search directly for Ebooks (if you are unable to come to campus for a book, or unable to wait for a book to be delivered to your campus) by going to the Library website and searching in eBrary or the EBSCO Ebooks database: http://jefferson.kctcs.libguides.com/Ebooks
