Welcome to the eBooks LibGuide

eBooks are like, well, books - only electronic. In many cases these digital copies are exactly like the original book.

eBooks tend to fall into two categories - those you read cover to cover and those you access to find an answer.

In the second category, you get in, you find your answer, and you get out. This type of eBook includes dictionaries, encyclopedias, handbook, guides, etc. When using them you may never see the entire book. Instead, the eBook's search engine will only retrieve the relevant articles or passages identified in your search. This kind of eBook acts more like a database than a book.

Compare the different reading / searching-within-text experience of these two eBooks.
