March 15, 2010 – We have access to nearly 50,000 ebooks from netLibrary. Only a single user can view a given netLibrary ebook at a time. If an ebook is in use, you now have the opportunity to place a hold on that ebook and then be notified when it is available for your use. The ebook will be held for your exclusive use for a limited time.
When an ebook is in use by another patron, you see a link for the hold request option or the notification request option. Click the link to receive an email message when a copy of the title is available. You will need a netLibrary account to place the hold.
Many of our ebooks are available as PDFs and this format is supported by many ebook readers. Here's a chart listing the capabilities of several major e-reader devices. Some of our downloadable ebooks use Abobe Digital Editions to set expiration periods; here's a list of compatible devices.We do not provide support for loading ebooks onto your device.
We recommend these apps for reading most of our downloadable ebooks:
