The Virginia Tech Libraries have subscribed to a number of ebook packages, giving us access to hundreds of thousands of books online. All allow reading the ebook through the browser, and many allow downloading for offline reading or transfer to a mobile device or dedicated ebook reader. Most of our ebooks are PDFs, and thus require no additional software to view. See each entry for formats and restrictions.


The library subscribes to over 40,000 ejournals, plus we still receive hundreds in print.
