Ebooks@UGA: About ebooks

A guide to finding, reading and downloading ebooks at the UGA Libraries

Welcome to ebooks!

  • You can view ebooks on computers and mobile devices. To access ebooks from off campus you will be prompted to log in with your UGA MyID.
  • To do the best research don't limit yourself to ebooks. We have millions of print books, but only thousands of ebooks.
  • You can find ebooks in GIL-Find (the book catalog) or in MultiSearch (books & journal articles).
  • Ebooks come from a few different providers. When you click on a link to an ebook, the 'look' of the page will vary depending on which provider it came from.
  • If another UGA user is reading the ebook online or has downloaded it, you may receive a message that the ebook is in use and you will not be able to access it for a period of time. This is like when a print book has been checked out from the library. You can try again later.

You can read ebooks while you are online. See the other tabs in this guide for help with downloading chapters of ebooks or entire ebooks offline.
