You may choose to view any Ebook within our collection without checking it out by clicking on the link to the ebook.
Ebooks in the Ebscohost database may be checked out for varying periods, from one to seven days. If you click on Download this eBook (Offline), you will be given a choice of a "Checkout Period." You must create a MyEbscohost account to check out an ebook. When your checkout period is up, the Ebook is automatically checked back in and becomes available for someone else to use. If someone else already has a specific Ebook checked out, you may still view the table of contents, and can also choose to be notified by email when the Ebook becomes available.
Credo Reference and Gale Virtual Reference Library ebook articles are available to email or download in either pdf or html format. You may then download chapters or articles within books from these services.
Ebooks may be contained within the results of any search for books, videos, or other library materials in the SVC Library Catalog. When using OneSearch, click on the Online Access link.
You may also search separately in each of the following library databases from the library website, http://library.skagit.edu. : Credo Reference, Ebscohost, or Gale Virtual Reference Library. If you are off campus, you will be prompted for your SVC email address and last name.I have more questions!
