How can I find and use e-books in the ACC Libraries

There are two ways to find and use ebooks.

  1. Go to the library catalog.
    • Enter your search terms and then filter your results by Format > Book (Ebook).
    • E-books are tagged in the catalog with an icon of a blue book with an "e" on the cover.
    • Open the book by selecting the View Now button.

  2. Or, you can go to our Online E-Books to view the e-book publishers/platforms we have.

If you are off-campus, you must enter your ACCeID and password to verify that you are a currently enrolled student.

If you need additional assistance, please call or visit our Ask a Librarian page. Hours and phone numbers can be found on our Locations & Hours page.

DO I HAVE TO DOWNLOAD AN E-BOOK TO VIEW IT?

No, you don't! Our e-books can just as easily be read via your phone, tablet, or computer browser -- all you need is an internet connection. While viewing titles online, you can search their content, turn pages, and print -- all without having to download to your device. Downloading can be helpful if you wish to view a title offline, i.e., you wish to read an e-book without having to use the Internet, WIFI, or data to access.
