Don’t Overlook the UIC Library E-Book Collections

Library resources are no longer limited to traditional print books and journals available only on the building’s shelves during open hours. Much of the library’s collection is now available in electronic format and can be accessed around the clock, as long as you have access to the internet. E-books are a growing segment of these emerging library resources that users of the UIC library should take full advantage of. The look and feel of these electronic books varies from vendor to vendor, but most of them share basic features such as search and print capabilities. Below are links to some of the library’s largest collections of electronic books. Many of the titles found in these collections may also be accessed through the library’s e-book searching tool, as well as from the library’s A-Z list of electronic resources.
