EBooks - Eeeee-xactly what I needed!
So, I was looking for a book with a very recent copyright date in school law. Our print collection had many volumes but I needed something very current. Lo, and behold-the eBook! I found it in the webpac along with the other holdings and it had an icon that reflected that it was electronic. I clicked on the link and after verifying that I had a barcode and username associated with Pierce here at EOU, I was in! I checked it out for 6 days and I was set. The table of contents that runs along the left side, helped me dip in and out of the content I needed. The navigation of the pages was easy. This sure is a great way to access current material. I didn't want to read the whole thing which reflects stats on the usage of eBooks...the average use is 5 to 15 minutes. Try it...you will like it!
