EBSCO eBooks Academic Collection


The library subscribes to a major collection of academic books, EBSCO eBooksebooks, which must be searched directly through the link on the E-Books page or the Databases A-Z list on the library website. Unlike other library e-books  subscriptions, such as Ebrary, Palgrave, Springer and OverDrive, these titles are not included in the catalog and OneSearch.

For this reason, we would like to highlight the contents of this collection, and encourage students and faculty to search EBSCO eBooks directly in order to supplement their searches on OneSearch and other databases.

EBSCO eBooks contains a large selection of multidisciplinary e-book titles representing a range of academic subjects. This packages contains over 141,500 e-books, including titles from leading university presses such as Cambridge, Harvard, MIT, McGill-Queen’s,  Oxford, SUNY, University of California and many more.

Features include:

  • Easy to Browse by Subject
  • Search by Topic
  • Unlimited simultaneous user access for Lehman students, faculty and staff
  • 90% of the collection is downloadable for offline reading
  • Embedded dictionary, full-text searching, page-by-page or chapter-by-chapter access

Please take advantage of this rich selection of quality academic books. Remember to search this collection directly, and use the E-Books Research Guide for help with access and downloading.
