E-Books at UNT

A brief guide on using e-books and their platforms.

This guide will help you learn how to use e-books at the UNT Libraries. The UNT Libraries has many e-book titles to choose from. Accessing e-books from the library can be different than accessing them from retailers. On this guide you will find useful terms and tips to help you understand library e-books, troubleshooting your access, and tutorials.

UNT has two main e-book platforms: EBSCOhost and ProQuest Ebook Central (although there are others).

            

Finding E-Books

E-books can be found through the UNT Catalog.

Click "Books & More." Then, click "E-Books."

You may search for e-books on the following page.

 

When you find an e-book in the catalog, you will see that the e-book's location is "UNT Online Resources" and the status is "Online." The notes section will say single user, multiple user, or unlimited user, as you can see in the example above. To access the book, click on "Find It."

 

Once you click "Find It," you will be redirected to the e-book within the book's platform page. This example shows an e-book that has been made available by the platform ProQuest EBL.
