Anytime/anywhere access eBook Collection

by Julie Morita, librarian

This fall semester, HPU libraries announced its new collection of academic eBooks to students, faculty and staff. The eBooks are full-text electronic versions of published books from netLibrary. Library patrons can search, borrow, and read them over the Internet.

The eBooks titles are available to library users from any computer via the Internet. Initial access to an HPU campus computer is necessary to start a netLibrary account. The netLibrary search technology allows users to quickly search across all the eBooks in the collection to find authors, titles, and keywords. Users can also search within eBooks for keywords and phrases.

The eBooks are available for checkout and are automatically checked back into the library collection when the checkout period expires, making the eBook available for another user.

“ We are excited to be working with netLibrary to offer eBooks as a new resource that will foster and encourage learning for our students and faculty,” said Kathleen Chee, HPU associate librarian.

“Since eBooks are accessible via the Internet, students will be able to access these resources 24/7.”

Visit one of the HPU libraries to pick up a brochure or download the instructions from the library’s tab on HPU Pipeline. Students, faculty, and staff may sign up for a netLibrary account at www.netLibrary.com from any on-campus computer.
