Not quite sure what ebrary is or how to use it? I wasn’t sure either before I played around on the site for a little while. It doesn’t take long at all to figure out. Ebrary is an online library. You can look up subjects or titles or authors just like other databases. It gives you a list of books that it thinks match what you’re looking for. You pick the one you want, and you can view the book online. You can check the table of contents page in the book you select and type the page number in that you are interested in, it takes you right to that page!
To get to the ebrary:
- go to the library homepage
- click “articles & databases”
- under “e-books”, click ebrary
Once on this site, it may look difficult to maneuver around and find what you’re looking for, but there are specific categories that make finding books easier. It may take a few minutes of playing around on the site to fully understand it, but it shouldn’t take you more than that. It’s fairly simple to use, and now that I know how to use it, you better believe I will! Just wish I figured it out sooner in my college career!
Check it out for yourself, I’m almost positive it will help you out!!!
