The library’s ebook collection recently grew by more than 90,000 titles with the acquisition of EBSCOhost’s Academic eBook Collection. This collection is the ebook equivalent of the article database Academic Search Premier. Both databases include publications on a wide variety of academic topics considered appropriate for an undergraduate college audience. Content in the database will change from time to time as EBSCOhost adds new titles and removes titles with low usage or for which the publisher no longer grants permission for inclusion in the database. Simultaneous usage is unlimited so more than one student may check a book out at a time.
The new ebook collection is still accessed using the eBooks from EBSCOhost link on the library’s website. Viewers may choose to search or browse all ebooks available to Union College (including legacy titles from the former NetLibrary collection) or just titles from the new ebook database.
