Over 200,000 E-books Are Now Available from EBSCO for a Limited Time

Submitted by Durham Tech Library on

EBSCOhost has offered Durham Tech temporary access to its eBook EBSCOhost company logoAcademic Collection to help students and instructors during the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, Durham Tech has set up a trial subscription with EBSCOhost for its eBook Community College Collection. Between the two collections, that's over 200,000 e-books, 88,000 of which are unique among Durham Tech's current e-books.

It's hard to imagine tens of thousands of books. Your Durham Tech library already has about 40,000 books and DVDs across three campuses, and provides another 100,000+ titles through ProQuest's Ebook Central collections. So, one way to think about it is that Durham Tech's e-book collections represent an online library about five times as big as our physical library collections. That's a lot of books!

Player and Avatar: The Affective Potential of Videogames by David Owen
Player and Avatar is one of over 60,000 e-books in EBSCO's Community College Collection.

What's that? You want to know how to find these e-books? I can tell you to just go to the library homepage and scroll down to Articles, Journals, and Databases and click. On that page, look for databases provided by EBSCO and look for the collections. Or, I can give you a shortcut to the EBSCO databases: http://durhamtech.libguides.com/az.php?v=74505.

The e-books in both collections can be found in Search Library, just like other library resources. And, if you need a refresher on how to use Search Library, there's a video tutorial for that.
