Electronic Books (ebooks)
Ebooks can also be searched for and accessed through WorldCat Local.
UI Library ebooks are made available through a number of different providers (see chart below). Each provider has a different interface; if you have questions or run into problems, please contact the Reference Desk.
* Digital Rights Mangagement (DRM) software prevents sharing of files with others and often imposes a time-limit for use; most current ebook DRM requires that books be read using Adobe Digital Editions (free download)
** Some ebooks (and other library-licensed electronic resources) allow only a pre-set number of users to access a resource at the same time
*** Some ebook platforms require a separate user account unique to the platform to use the resources and/or take advantage of certain features
