An ebook (also referred to as an electronic book, eBook, E-Book, or Digital Book) is a text that can be viewed and/or downloaded onto a computer or other digital device. Ebooks cover a wide range of genres and subjects. Though many ebooks are currently available in both digital and conventional paper formats, some are created strictly in digital format. Conversely, some conventional paper books do not exist in digital format, because of the book's copyright status, or the preferences of the book's publisher or author.
If you do not have a specific title in mind, use a keyword search to find all ebooks on your topic:
Reference Universe will point you to exact volumes and pages of reference materials in the Andersen Library. Most of the titles are part of the 2nd floor Reference Collection, but you may find titles in the 3rd floor Main Collection or online.
