Our e-books have a new look!

If you've looked at any ebooks from Naz today, you might have noticed that the interface looks different!

The Ebrary platform, which is where the majority of our ebooks reside, has migrated to Ebook Central.

When you click on an ebook link in the catalog, you'll arrive at a page that looks like this:


You can do several things on this page.  You can search for more books using the search box at the top of the screen.

You can also view, download and print the book (either the entire book or a certain number of pages, depending on the title):


You can jump to a particular chapter by clicking on it in the Table of Contents.

If you go straight to Ebook Central via the A-Z Database List, you'll see this starting page:


To download books, make notes or annotations on books, or save books to read later, you will need to create an account with Ebook Central and log in.  If you had an ebrary account previously, you will need to sign in and bring it into your new Ebook Central Bookshelf.

When you've started reading the book online, you have options to search for keywords, get citations, and more.


If you have any questions about finding and reading ebooks, please contact a reference librarian at answers.naz.edu.  Enjoy your reading!
