Today is Read an E-book Day

September 18, 2017 is Read an E-book Day. Do you know the library has three e-book collections at your fingertips? They are:

Lexis Digital Library

The library has over 800 volumes on Lexis Digital Library. The collection includes study aids, treatises, and books for 1Ls and about the general practice of law.

Ebook Central (ProQuest)

ProQuest Ebook Central Subjects

Ebook Central has 5071 e-books on law presently.

eBook Collection (EBSCOhost)

EBSCOhost has 422 law-related e-books. These e-books may be read online or downloaded for later reading.

Feature I Like Best: Notations/Highlighting

Many e-book platforms allow you to notate on them. This is great as a study aid. Feel free to add your own notes, with the knowledge that they will be there the next time you review the material. You can even highlight in most e-book readers. Only EBSCOhost e-books do not allow this feature natively, but you can download the resource to your Google drive and mark it up then.

What I am Currently Reading

I am reading Nordic Nights (book 3 of the Alix Thorssen Mysteries) by Lise McClendon. I enjoy mysteries and find Kindle an easy way to read them on my iPhone or Kindle reader.

Incidentally, there is no standard proper nomenclature for e-book (aka Ebook or eBook). The British prefer ebook, where the rest of the world uses e-book.
