eBooks: Finding eBooks

This guide provides a brief overview of how to find e-books in Primo and how to view, print, and download Collins Library e-books.

eBook Basics & Access

Good news! Basic use of eBooks is easy. Do you have a browser on your device? Then you can search for, find, and read (open and view) online all of Collins Library eBooks.

All of our eBooks can be found and accessed through Primo

When possible, the record in Primo will indicate if Collins provides unlimited, simultaneous, access to an eBook, or whether it's limited to 1-user at a time, or other user limitations.  Please note that sometimes unlimited access is not an available purchase option for a title. If this is the case, and the title you're interested in is "in use" just check back at a later time.

If you're looking for basic overviews or online reference materials, you also may find it helpful to browse through Collins Library Subject Guides and Course Guides.
