eBooks are electronic versions of print books that the library has either purchased with a perpetual license or via an annual subscription. Some subscriptions allow download of the entire book, some only by chapter, and some don't allow any downloading but can be accessed and read at any time. Because of the large number of titles, very few are cataloged and, therefore, they must be accessed through each individual database. This guide will assist you in finding eBooks at the Annenberg Library.
The Walter H. Annenberg library provides access to more than 900,00 electronic books across virtually all academic subjects.
