In response to the rise in e-book usage at the library, we recently created a new guide on finding law e-books to make it easier to navigate and access them.
In the guide you will find the major e-book platforms, such as Brill, Elgar Online, and ProView, where you can browse and search for law e-books. It also outlines some of the platform features, any access restrictions, and how to find e-books through the Omni library catalogue.
As you may have already discovered, there are several advantages to using e-books, including remote 24/7 access, full-text searching, highlighting, magnification, annotating, and much more.
Please note, however, that not all print books have an e-book version and the number of concurrent users may differ from publisher to publisher. The access restriction box under each platform tab has more information.
We have also created a video tutorial to complement the guide if you would like a visual walkthrough. The video can be found below:
If you are looking for non-law e-books, the York University Libraries’ E-Book Guide is a good place to start as it lists the main multidisciplinary e-book platforms along with some troubleshooting tips.
