The library subscribes to ProQuest Ebook Central, our largest collection of electronic books.
Ebook Central ebooks can be viewed in their entirety online within the browser. In addition, users can download a book for offline reading on either their tablet or phone (iOS and Android are supported) using the Bluefire Reader for mobile devices--freely available for iOS devices in the App Store and for Android devices in Google Play.
You will need Adobe Digital Editions to download ebooks to your laptop or desktop. This free software is different from Adobe Reader.
