eBooks at the Blume Library

The Blume Library owns thousands of eBooks that are available to you via the Library Catalog and directly from our eBook collection databases.  

This guide provides help in finding, using, and viewing eBooks online.  You will also find instructions on downloading EBSCO eBooks to your computer and, in some cases, to your eReader (such as the iPad, Nook, Kindle Fire, etc.). These tips focus, primarily, on the EBSCO eBooks platform.

You can also find links to sites providing access to free eBook collections.  

eBooks are great resources but can be intimidating for first time users.  I encourage you to get in touch if you have any questions about accessing or using our eBooks.
