Yes, you can use your ipad, tablet PC, or e-reader to read library e-books! We have a number of e-book collections including:
Electronic Books Library (EBL)
How do I find library e-books?
Search the library’s catalog by going to the library’s homepage, library.du.edu, clicking on the “Books, Journals & More” tab, and searching for a book title or a topic. You can then view all of the results of your search that are digital by clicking “Internet” as the “Location” on the left-hand side of the screen.
Note that many physical titles in Penrose Library are also available as e-books. The electronic version of a book will be listed separately in the library catalog. Be sure to look for the term “[electronic resource]” after the book’s title in your search results.
Other ways to find e-books through the library are described in our E-Book Research Guide.
How do I download and print?
The e-book world is complex, with many different tablets and readers (including NOOK, iPad, Kindle Fire, and Kobo) as well as many different e-book providers. The librarians at Penrose Library have created an E-book Research Guide to help you download and print from our different e-book providers using your tablet computer or reader.
