What can I do with an eBook that I can't with a print copy?

Functionality varies between the different collections. However most enable you to:

  • search for keywords within the text
  • add notes within the text - you can then download or print the notes
  • read a book online or download a copy of the book for a specific time period
  • print sections of the book. (Please refer to our copyright guidelines before doing this)
  • access the eBook title you want, when you want (this is because most eBook collections allow multiple concurrent users)
  • access the eBook both on and off-campus

Each eBook provider will have help information available, giving you more details of how to use functions such as adding notes or downloading.
