EBSCOhost eBook Academic Collection updated ... new ebooks available



Just want to let you know that all titles available from the EBSCOhost eBook Academic Collection are now loaded into our Library catalogue (http://library.twu.ca/ and this collection is current up to the end of Oct 31, 2013. 127,000 full-text ebooks from this EBSCOhost collection are now available to TWU Library patrons (we have added 48,000 since Jan, 2013.  80,000+ in the 2nd half of 2012).  

Each of these full-text ebooks are now searchable/accessible from the Library's online catalogue, as well as from the main Ebscohost database search pages (see link above). To browse the entire collection in our Library catalogue just enter the search phrase “ebook academic collection” in the Author field (not really recommended due to sheer numbers!).

We do not own these titles which are considered ‘rental’ just like ejournals from the subscribed journal databases.  But this subscription gives us an affordable way to provide a large collection of ebooks to faculty, staff and students.
