The proliferation of e-books, online texts, and e-readers is progressing at a dizzying speed. We here at the library have created a new online guide on e-books and e-readers to help guide you through part of this Brave New World.
But there is much more than Kindles and Nooks in the way of digital texts. Consider the digital archive. If you look in the library’s handy list of online resources, under virtually any subject, you’ll find online texts of some sort or another. In English, French, Jewish Studies, Philosophy, German, Women, Gender and Sexuality, and History. Even in Engineering, Business and Film and Media, you’ll find some sort of digital texts listed.
- The complete works of Kafka
- Early English Books Online
- American Film Scripts
- World Bank E-Library
- NASA Technical Reports
- Women’s History Online, 1543-1945
- American Civil War Letters and Diaries
To name just a few.
And there’s one other form of online/digital books brought to you by the library: e-books that you can find in the libraries’ online catalog. Limit your search (in the Browse By section) to “Online”, and then search on a keyword or two. You’ll find 1000’s of e-books that you can read online, download, print, etc. And we add more (practically) every day.
