The Felix G. Woodward Library has added 14,000 eBooks, electronic versions of printed books, to its collections. The books are indexed on the library's Felix database, an online catalog of all the materials located in the library and the music listening lab.
Electronic resources librarian DeAnne Luck says the netLibrary has several advantages. Students can view eBooks online 24 hours a day, seven days a week from any computer connected to the Internet. Most books always will be available because they can only be checked out for two hours. And eBooks can't be lost.
After choosing an eBook, library patrons can browse through its contents for 15 minutes or check it out for two hours. Books are automatically retrieved after two hours.
