MSJC eBooks


The MSJC Libraries own or subscribe to over 200,000 eBooks. Most eBooks are read on whatever device you are using. They can be found in the Library's catalog, along with print books. After entering your search terms in  OneSearch, refine your results by Format (books) and Availability (available online) to limit your search results to eBooks.

Each eBook collection can also be accessed individually and directly through the Libraries' A-Z Database List.

EBSCO eBooks are recommended as a good starting point with the largest collection of eBooks on the widest range of subjects.
