Ebook Collections!

As most of the collection at the Cannon Memorial Library is now virtual, we thought there should be a spotlight on our two largest collections, Ebrary and EBSCO’s EBook Collection.

Ebrary is an all-subject collection which now contains over 78,000 ebook titles, many of which can be downloaded to multiple devices, including Android or iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch! First install Adobe Digital Editions on your computer (free online) and soon you can download an entire document as an e-book.

EBSCO’s EBook Collection contains full text digital versions of books (over 80,000) the library has purchased for your use. Please be aware that if you opt to download ebooks, you must create a personal EBSCO account to do so, also requiring Adobe® Digital Editions 1.7.1 or higher for offline viewing. All support information can be found on the EBSCO support page.

As always, titles also can be found through our library homepage’s quick search option. If troubles arise, please contact a librarian at the reference desk at (352)588.8477, or try our new reference system, LibAnswers
