NetLibrary is now eBooks on EBSCOhost

eBooks on EBSCOhost The NetLibrary ebook website has been retired, and the ebooks from this collection are now available through the eBooks on EBSCOhost  platform. The collection can be accessed from an SCLS authentication link (such as the one on the Online Resources page) or via LINKcat (search by Library Catalog for NetLibrary).

Viewing Online: All eBooks on EBSCOhost can be viewed online using the title's "eBook Full Text" link. The ebook will be automatically checked out while you are viewing it and will be unavailable to others. It will automatically check itself back in after 15 minutes of inactivity.

Downloading: Most, but not all, eBooks on EBSCOhost can be downloaded to Windows and Mac computers. Downloading requires a free My EBSCOhost account (click the "Sign In" link to create one), and you must have Adobe Digital Editions installed to complete the download. Tips:

  • If you click a title's "Download (Offline)" link, it will be automatically checked out to you (as if you had clicked the "eBook Full Text" link) and will be unavailable to others. Clicking the "Cancel" button and not downloading the title will return it to the collection after 15 minutes.
  • You can select your own checkout period (typically 1-7 or 1-14 days—the maximum checkout period varies by title). The title will be unavailable to others during the checkout period.
  • Downloaded ebooks cannot be returned early at this time.

E-readers and Devices: Downloadable titles can be used with devices that are compatible with Adobe Digital Editions. You must download the title via Adobe Digital Editions and then transfer it to your device using Adobe Digital Editions (i.e. you cannot copy the ebook file to your device using your computer's file system).
