26 PossibleTitles added to eTextbook list
The library is working full speed to provide as many eTextbooks as possible.
- 26 possible titles available though our ProQuest EBook Central and eBooks on EBSCOhost subscriptions were excluded from the original list because they cannot be purchased., The reasoning was that they could disappear at any time and would not be safe to recommend to students. We still cannot guarantee that they will not disappear at any time, but the odds are good that these titles will last through the end of the semester. Warning! Not all titles allow unlimited users and not all titles are the correct edition, so you will need to check the list to determine their suitability.- Completed.
- We are currently searching for any titles which were not available for purchase in December, and for titles which might substitute, ie. titles with the wrong edition or single user or three user access. We will contact individual faculty over the next two days (Tues and Wed.) and ask if you can use a substitute edition.
