E-textbook for this Class

Using Ebsco Ebooks

To get the most out of this e-textbook it is a good idea to create an account in Ebsco. 

To create an Ebsco account start at the library home page, then click the Advanced Search link under the main search box, (the tab is named Article Quick Search).

This takes you to a page with a sign in tab at the upper left. From here, follow the prompts.

For instance the ebook does not offer highlight functionality,  however  faculty and students can create and save notes by logging into their EBSCOhost folder.  (See instructions for creating an account above).

The publisher permissions vary between 60-100 pages and this allows the patron to take up to that page limit with no log-in or software requirement.  For EBSCO eBooks, the publisher permissions are session set up so that multiple patrons can take up to 60 pages at any time and they refresh once the eBook is closed.  So if you need another section or chapter, you can download an additional 60 pages that same day or another time. 
You can also email chapters to yourself one at a time.
The EBSCO eBook LibGuide can be found here which walks through the various functions of the eBook full text viewer:
