The Gannett-Tripp Library’s eBook Collection includes over 150,000 titles from EBSCOhost’s Academic eBook Collection and from the GTL's growing number of purchased ebooks--all accessible through Library Search. The Library purchases ebooks as the preferred format for books. You do not have to download ebooks to read them. Each book can be read online by clicking eBook Full Text under the entry in your Library Search results list. Tools at the bottom of the frame allow you to adjust the size and go either to the next page or the page of your choice.
About 85% of the ebook collection is available for downloading for the convenience of reading offline at a later time, either on your personal computer or another electronic device. If you choose to download ebooks, you will need to:

Due to publishers’ restrictions, limitations vary on how many pages of an ebook can be printed. Some publishers do not permit any printing; some allow as many as 60 pages. It is also unethical to print an excessive number of pages due to copyright law.
After clicking on the title link in the search results, select the Save tool from the right sidebar. Select the number of pages you would like to print (the limit for saving and printing pages will display), and save the pages as a PDF, then print.
