The Creighton Libraries own or subscribe to electronic books on a variety of different platforms. Major platforms include: the eBook Collection from EBSCOhost (150,000 titles); ebrary (1,300 fixed titles plus many click-to-buy items); SpringerLink (60,300); eDuke Books (2,150); Project Muse (720); and ScienceDirect (565 titles).

How do I find e-books?

E-book access may be disrupted during the 2016 spring semester, due to the Creighton Libraries' switch to a new e-book subscription (EBSCOhost) and the transition to a new library discovery system (Ex Libris Primo).

At present, most e-books can be found through Summon, our current discovery tool. If the e-book you want will not load, you can search the vendor's e-book platform directly by clicking on the logo(s) at right.

The Library Catalog (CLIC), which will soon be retired, still includes some ebrary titles available through a click-to-purchase profile. All of these will eventually be included in the new Primo system coming later this year.

Questions? If you are having any trouble finding or loading the e-book(s) you need, please don't hesitate to contact us at (402) 280-2227 or askus@creighton.edu!

Can I access e-books from off campus?

Yes! When you enter Summon from home, click on "Off Campus?" in the upper left-hand corner of your screen to log in with your Creighton netID and password. You can then open e-books and other proprietary content from off campus.

Can I print or copy e-books?

Yes, in most instances you may copy/paste portions of an e-book. You may also print up to five pages at a time. However, just as hard copy materials cannot be duplicated in full, copyright law also prohibits printing an entire e-book unless it is already in the public domain.

Can I download e-books to an iPad or other device?

EBSCOhost - E-books can be downloaded for up to 14 days to selected devices. Please refer to Downloading an eBook. Further information is available for Apple devices.

ebrary - Content can be downloaded to numerous devices, including the iPad, iPhone, Kobo, Nook, and Sony Reader. Please see ebrary's Overview of download options.
