The Brandeis Library subscribes to several ebook collections giving us access to thousands of books online, covering a wide variety of subjects. Most of our ebooks can be searched individually through OneSearch or the vendor's interface. All of these collections currently allow reading the book through a web browser and a few also allow downloading full books or chapters which can then be transferred to an ebook reader or tablet.

Once your results are displayed you can narrow your results by clicking Show More under the Tweak my results by Resource Type on the left-hand side and selecting Books & EBooks and applying the filter.
