We are delighted to announce that starting in February your e-book options for education topics will be greatly expanded! We anticipate adding a large batch (1000's!) of current education e-books through a new arrangement with our eBrary vendor. You can find these new e-books in three ways.
Many of you will be familiar with searching by keyword or browsing by subjects linked to each book's short descriptive record in our old-style catalog.
You'll be happy to learn that eBrary e-books are now downloadable!
Current Drexel students, faculty and staff have access to over 32,000 scholarly books from the vendor eBrary, including titles from a wide variety of disciplines. Reading these books previously required an active internet connection, but all that has changed. Now, e-books can be downloaded and used offline by creating a PDF of a single chapter, or installing the free Adobe Digital Editions to download an entire book. That means you can take them on the plane, overseas, anywhere!
ebrary is launching their new interface January 20, 2009. The new look allows for quicker navigation and a sleeker look, and the long-time coming QuickView -- which allows users instant access to the full text of ebooks WITHOUT DOWNLOADING THE EBRARY READER! This and other features of the new interface are described in the ebrary technology site.
