Finding ebooks at the OCC Libraries
The OCC Libraries have thousands of electronic books (ebooks) available online and in full-text for immediate access on-campus or at home through the eBooks on EBSCOhost database.
There are two main ways for you to find ebooks from the OCC Libraries:
- Search at the eBooks on EBSCOhost site
Use the search box at the right to connect to eBooks on EBSCOhost (off-campus users will be asked to login with OCC ID and password). You may choose to create a free EBSCOhost account, though you don't have to if you only want to view ebooks on your computer. A free EBSCOhost account will allow you to keep notes, maintain a favorites list, and checkout and download ebooks to an ebook reader (see below for more information).
- Find ebooks in the Library Catalog
You can also find ebooks when you search the OCC Libraries Catalog. You can search for ebooks by clicking on Power Search in the catalog and limiting the Format to ebooks. Please note that if you find ebooks from eBooks on EBSCOhost in the catalog from off-campus, you will not be automatically logged in if you link to them from the catalog (by clicking on the Go button). You will either have to create a free EBSCOhost account or login anonymously.
