One of the two major eBook providers that the library uses is Boundless. While the majority of eBooks are provided by EBSCO eBooks, we have found select titles of books and scores available through Boundless. You may find that the experience of locating, reading and accessing eBooks is different with this website, so here are some tips for navigating the site:
- Locating eBooks/eScores: You can locate eBooks and eScores on their site, by browsing or searching. You might also encounter a link from a record in the library's catalog, which will take you directly to the item.
- Viewing eBooks/eScores: To view an eBook, you must first check out the book, like you would a physical book from the library. Click the "Checkout" button (See image below) and log in with your OnePass credentials. Once you return to the screen, click the Read button to view the book. You will see that you have the book checked out for two days, though we often recommend that users return the book once they are finished reading, especially if the book is being used or a course. To return, use the dropdown menu next to the "Read" button and click "Return" (See image below).
- Placing a hold: If all of the copies are being used by another patron, you can place a hold on the book. Click the Place Hold button (See image below) and you will be notified by email when the next copy is available.
