Using eBooks

Basics

Current students, employees, and adjunct teachers at the University of Mississippi have access to thousands of eBooks. Collections to which the UM Libraries currently subscribe include:

Finding a specific ebook

You can use the eBook Search option in the UM Libraries’ catalog. When you do a search in "One Search" or the library catalog, eBooks will be identified with the word "eBook" and an icon as shown here.

 

Accessing specific eBooks

The UM Libraries have a single user license for most eBooks, which means that they can be viewed or downloaded by only one person at a time. You do have the option of being notified when the eBook becomes available for use. You can request an upgrade to a multiple user license through your Subject Librarian. However, not all titles are available for upgrade.
