Do you want a say in the library’s eBook collection? Thanks to our newest system for purchasing ebooks, now you can help us decide what to buy!
Searching for an eBook is no different than before. You can still view them when you look through our online catalog using HillSearch, but now you have access to substantially more titles. We have added over 12,500 new ebook titles to the catalog; these titles cover a wide variety of subjects, and most were published over the past two years. The ebooks haven’t been purchased yet, but that doesn’t matter – you can still use them immediately, and by doing so, you’re telling us that you want that title in our standard eBook collection. If other people use it as well, we’ll add it in.
This new system makes last-minute research easier. While Interlibrary Loan is always a useful tool, sometimes you need an extra source immediately. Using our eBooks gives you instantaneous access to a multitude of texts on a variety of topics. You’re also helping to make the library’s collections better by showing us what books are most relevant to students’ academic needs.
For instance, here are a few new ebook titles users have recently read:
- Documents Decoded: The Great Depression and the New Deal
- Lucid Dreaming, New Perspectives on Consciousness in Sleep
- Studies in Performance and Early Modern Drama : Staging the Superstitions of Early Modern Europe
- Confronting Commercial Sexual Exploitation and Sex Trafficking of Minors in the United States : A Guide for the Legal Sector
