      What you will learn…
    • An e-book or electronic book is a book published in an electronic format instead of being published on paper
      E-books contain the same information as if the book was printed. This is considered a book source, not a web source.
      You read an e-book digitally on your computer
      WHAT IS AN E-BOOK?
    • When Searching the ICC online catalog, you will get search results for print books and e-books.
      Print books have this symbol and a physical location like the stacks
      E-books have this symbol and the location of electronic book
    • To access the e-book, click on the title of the book to open the record
      Then, click on the link in the “online access” area
    • Accessing E-books from Home
      If you are accessing e-books from off-campus, you will be asked to login. This is your ICC login and password. Please contact the library if you have any difficulties logging in.
    • If it is a NetLibrary book, you will see this page
      Click on
      “View this eBook”
    • Now you are in the e-book and you can start reading and browsing
