We acquired the first e-book for the Clermont College Library collection in August, 2014. Up to that point, we’d purchased only print. And I love print books, holding them in my hand, flipping the pages.
But as much as I love print books, I appreciate e-books. And here’s why.
Our students can access them from home, in the middle of the night, in their pajamas. They just log-on with off-campus access, search their topic or title and presto…an e-book appears that can be opened and read immediately.
Another reason I like e-books. Our students have access to 1,533,274+ e-books. Can I get a wow?
How do you find an e-book? Go to the library’s web site and in the red box (Summon search box) type in the title or topic you’re looking for. Choose the filters that best suit your search. The results list will indicate if the book is an e-book.
As always, stop by or call the library (732-5233) with any questions.
