Tips on Using eBooks


The books that you find in electronic form on the library website are available from the vendor server and can be viewed through their various eBook interfaces.  For this reason you will find some variability in the kinds of interfaces you will use for eBooks.  


Some of  these services will also allow you to download a chapter or a fixed amount of pages at a time. (Note: page files are numbered differently from books.  All book files start at page 1, regardless of print book numbers, whereas the display may show a copy of the print book and may start on page i, ii, etc.   You will need to adjust your download accordingly.)

Device Required

TTU Library eBooks may only be used in a personal computer in an internet browser and may only be downloaded to your harddrive.  Kindle/Nook compatible books are not available at this time.
