Borrowing Ebooks

Ebook Borrowing

Electronic books are digital books to be read on an internet connected device. They are keyword searchable, more environmentally friendly, and often times more than one person can read the book at the same time. Access to ebooks from a distance or during shut downs and emergencies is also possible. An ebook collection is also not restricted by the size of a building or amount of shelves. For all these reasons and more, Xavier University of Louisiana library is an ebook first library. To check out an ebook, use keywords to search for your topic. Ebooks will be indicated with an "Available Online" link below the book's title and description.
