eBooks: Getting Started

The library provides access to more than 200,000 ebooks in ALEX. All of the ebooks can be read online with no additional software or downloading required. If you want to download an ebook to your computer or ebook reader follow these steps:

  1. Set up your reader or computer.
  2. Follow the viewing and downloading instructions. You will need to create an account on ebrary and EBSCO.
  3. Need more help? Ask a Librarian. We'd be happy to set up an appointment to introduce you to ebooks at Hamilton.
