    What are eBooks?

    Electronic versions of published books are known as eBooks or e-books. These books are accessible from any computer with an Internet connection, allowing users to access a books content from anywhere at any time. If you have any questions or would like more information about eBooks, please Ask a Librarian.

    Tips for accessing eBooks:

    Scroll down to browse or search within a specific eBook collection.

    You may also conduct an Advanced Search of the Library Catalog, where you can limit the Material Type to E-Books.

    To access eBooks from off-campus, you will be asked to enter your last name and MHCC identification number. If you have problems, please refer to our Off-Campus Access Guide.

    Many eBooks are limited to one user at a time; if you cannot connect, wait a few minutes then try again.
