Have You Tried an eBook Lately?

EBooks can provide a big boost to your research … and you don’t need to come to the Library to use them!

Holman Library has about 50000 eBooks from two different vendors: Ebsco and ebrary. You can search for eBooks in the catalog, or in either ebrary or Ebsco. Start your search on our eBooks page -

When you search using ebrary or Ebsco, you are searching the full text of their eBooks. Searching the text within an eBook can be very  helpful. You can see the search term highlighted and relevance ranking for the full text search in this example from ebrary:

ebrary eBook: Playing with the Boys: Why Separate is Not Equal in Sports
