E-books

The Jerry Falwell Library has access to over 150,000 e-books. E-books are electronic versions of print books, and they are hosted online. The library’s e-books are accessible from a laptop or most mobile devices.

While e-books do not replace print, they have some advantages. E-books are:

  1. Full-text searchable
  2. Accessible off-campus
  3. Often available for simultaneous use by unlimited customers

Even though the library e-books cover a wide range of subject areas, we do have some subject specific e-book collections. You will find e-books on religion, business, psychology, computer science, education, literature, biology, history, and much more.

Search for specific e-books by selecting "E-books" from the drop down menu in the search box above, or you can browse E-book databases by subject.
