Using E-Books

ProQuest E-Book Central

ProQuest E-Book Central e-books can be read online in full.

Most E-Book Central e-books allow 40% of the e-book to be downloaded to PDF (though some publishers allow less and others allow full download). Page limits refresh after 24 hours, so if you need more than the amount allotted by the publisher, you can return the next day and download additional pages.

EBook Central

Many ProQuest e-books can only be accessed by one user from an institution at a time; if a second user tries to access it, they will be turned away and will need to try again later. If you are unable to access an e-book because of repeated turnaways, please let us know so we can help you gain access.

JSTOR E-Books

JSTOR e-books allow unlimited viewing, printing, and downloading.

In addition to the catalog, they can also be found when searching in the JSTOR database.

Some of these e-books may have lending restrictions, or may only allow the text to be searched. If you have difficulty accessing an open access e-book, or need help finding additional open access sources not included in the catalog, schedule a one-on-one research consultation or contact us.
