Textbooks available as e-books through the Library

Assign a library e-book as a course text

If you would like to recommend that the SPU library purchase an e-book, or if you are considering using a library e-book as a course text, please contact your liaison librarian.


  • Not all books are available to purchase as e-books, especially traditional textbooks.
  • E-books need to allow for many readers to access the book at a time if it will be used as a course text.
  • E-books are often (but not always) more expensive than print copies.
  • E-books available through library subscriptions may be discontinued at some point.
