Resource spotlight: Ebooks

The McGoogan Library owns or provides access to a growing collection of ebooks in the health sciences. In most cases, the library will not purchase the print version of books for which we have electronic access.  We offer many ways of using and viewing our ebooks.  If you know the title, ISBN, publisher, or vendor of an ebook, you can search for it directly in our Ebook A-Z list.

Ebooks are generally only available via the web interface, not devices such as Kindles. Some publishers and vendors do provide specific apps for viewing content from a mobile device. You can view a table of these options and more from our ebook library guide.

Access to PDFs also vary and sometimes require a personal logon, such as in the case of Clinical Key. If you have any questions or have problem with our ebooks please contact the AskUs desk at 402-559-6221 or askus@unmc.edu.
