How do I gain access to an online book?
You would begin by searching the library catalog: http://opac.csuchico.edu/. Just search for your topic/subject by typing a keyword or keywords. Once you click "search" a list of books with those keywords will be listed on a result list and some will be print books and others online books. Online books will have a link in the middle of the screen which looks like this:
|Link to the online resource below.|
|View E-book (CSUC users only)|
which is in the middle of the page and will take you to the ebook.
For example this record: http://opac.csuchico.edu/record=b2173560~S2 you would click
If you are away from the library you will need to login with your portal account to access the online books. We do have a variety of different platforms for ebooks and each is a little different to access.
Once the book is open you can download to a device, flip through pages, read the content and search the book.
