Metal Music Research: Books & e-Books

Search Library Resources - Primo VE

E-books

E-books are books that have been downloaded into the library catalog for increased access.  They contain all of the content of a regular book.  E-books contain many useful features that make them easier to use than print books.  Such as:

  • You can access them whenever you want, whether or not the library is open.
  • While your session may expire with an e-book, you can always renew it.
  • Many e-books have a table of contents which allows you to jump to whatever chapter you are interested.
  • E-books have a search bar which allows you to search a word, phrase, or a few words. The search will give you every time the word has been used in the book and will take you directly to those pages.

To learn how to download ebooks onto your computer or tablet see our research guide on the topic here.
