Browse Preston Library's eBooks

Preston Library's collections include several groups of eBooks, covering all subjects, and you can search for eBooks in the library catalog. Many of the eBooks are made available by VIVA, the consortium that also provides many of our online databases. All of the library's eBooks can be accessed directly from your computer, tablet, or any device connected to the Web.

In the fall of 2015, librarians decided to add a collection of JSTOR eBooks in a demand-driven purchase format. This means that the library catalog includes records for over 30,000 JSTOR book titles. Once there have been page views of six chapters or four chapter downloads, that book is purchased.

Our collection of purchased JSTOR eBooks is growing, and this guide allows you to browse the purchased JSTOR eBooks. They are organized by subject. Many topics are inter-disciplinary, for example, national security, and can be found in the international studies, history, or political science pages.

Let me know if you have questions about this and please enjoy these eBooks!
