Ebooks @ the Consortium Library

A guide to finding, using, and downloading ebooks at the UAA/APU Consortium Library.

Finding Ebooks at the Library

There are several different ways to locate and access ebooks in the Consortium Library:

The Library strives to collect ebooks to meet a wide variety of research needs. This means we get ebooks from many different suppliers with many different publishing models and restrictions. While we try to make access to ebooks as easy as possible, we are not currently able to make our ebooks accessible all in one place.

 

Please Ask a Librarian if you are having difficulty locating an ebook.
