Did you return to Emory after the holidays with a brand-new tablet or electronic book reader? The Emory Libraries have many electronic resources available in our collection. Depending on what you're looking for and the device you're using, however, you may be limited to the ways in which you can get your reading done. We're here to help.

E-books are distributed in a variety of formats with different kinds of digital rights management. For example, you'll be able to read some formats on an e-book reader, but for others, you'll have to be logged into a computer. The differences between different e-book publisher's interfaces and rights management systems can make researching and reading can be difficult to understand.
We've compiled an E-books Guide to help you find and use e-books at Emory. In it, you'll learn more about the printing and reading rights available for each publisher, whether you can download particular e-books to portable devices. If you're in the market for a tablet or reader, we've included a chart comparing recent gadgets to help you make a decision.
The library also offers first-generation iPads and Barnes and Noble NOOKcolor readers available for you to check out. You can borrow them for two weeks and read e-books on those, as well. If you already have a gadget on which you read electronic materials, but forgot your charger, you can borrow one from the Marian K. Heilbrun Music and Media Library.
