What is an Ebook?

undefined

An ebook is the electronic version of a normal book.

These days some books are created as electronic copies first and then as printed books.

Your Library has lots of ebooks for you to borrow.

You'll need to download the ebook file to a smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC or dedicated ebook reader in order to use it.

For more information on ebooks formats, accessibility and open access ebooks, check out our dedicated LibGuide here.
