The SDCC Library has several collections of e-books available. The collections are listed in the A-Z Databases list page, or can be found during searches of our SDCCD Books + catalog and OneSearch.
Library e-books can be helpful when academic or trade books are assigned for course readings. However, not every title is available for the library to purchase as an e-book, and standard textbook publishers rarely offer library e-book versions. Please ask your liaison librarian for more information about using e-books in your courses. Here are some points to consider:
Multiple user e-books vs. Single user e-books
Assigning e-Books in Your Course
Ownership vs Subscription for e-Books
