Downloading eBooks LibGuide - JCU Library & Computing News

It is the 21st Century and JCU Library's collection now has many eBooks. This is a convenient option for students who can't get to the library to borrow because of travel distance or time commitments.

There are two ways to read an eBook:
  1. Read it online in your web browser
  2. Download the item as a short term loan or PDF
 If you choose to download, some items download as PDF files (like most journal articles). However, many eBooks have a restricted borrowing period due to copyright laws and electronic software restrictions. ThisDigital Rights Management may require you to download additional software.

You can read more about JCU Library's eBooks and how to access and reference them on our eBook Guide.
