Have a Smart Phone, iPad, Kindle or Nook? 32,000 scholarly books are available to you.

December 2, 2011

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 books can be found in the Libraries' catalog using a keyword search (click here to view an example), or browse the full-text of the entire collection by logging onto the eBrary platform itself. Those curious about technical details can see the FAQ. Questions or comments? Contact Tim Siftar, Liaison Librarian for Education and Information Science and Technology Article By: Tim Siftar
