The library has access to over 180,000 e-books through various subscription databases.  Our two main collections are through ebrary and EBSCOhost eBooks.  We also have access to various reference texts, sheet music, newspapers, and other e-books through Credo Reference, Gale Virtual Reference, Music Online Reference, and Shaw-Shoemaker (early American imprints).

Many of our e-books are listed in the library catalog, so you can search our e-books through the custom E-Books search.  You can view the e-books from any internet accessible computer, either on-campus or off-campus with your LVC username/password. 

Ebrary offers an additional option to download many of the e-books for a 2 week loan. The downloaded e-book can be viewed offline through a mobile device, such as a tablet. 

With the exception of EBSCOhost eBooks, most of the e-books will allow viewing by unlimited users.  EBSCOhost eBooks only allow one user at a time to access the e-book.  You may also be able to print a limited number of pages from e-books, depending upon the collection.  If printing is allowed, it is usually limited to a chapter and/or certain number of pages.
