The Creighton Libraries own or subscribe to electronic books, or e-books, on a variety of different platforms. Major collections include ebrary and SpringerLink. E-books at Creighton are all available through the Library Catalog (CLIC).
How do I find e-books?
You will find e-books in the Library Catalog (CLIC), with the word Internet as the call number location. The easiest way to isolate e-books in CLIC is to select the material type "E-BOOK" when executing your catalog search.
Can I access e-books from off-campus?
Yes! When you enter the Library Catalog (CLIC) as a "Creighton User", you will be prompted to log in with your netID and password. You can then search and connect to your e-books 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?
Ebrary content can be downloaded numerous devices, including the iPad, iPhone, Kobo, Nook, and Sony Reader. You can familiarize yourself with ebrary by viewing the Quick Start video (11:36 minutes) as needed, and Download Training is also available (PPT).
EBSCOhost e-books can also be downloaded for 14 days to numerous supported devices. Users may also refer to the following FAQs on the EBSCO website:
