eBooks Overview

What is an eBook?

An eBook is a book presented in a format which allows it to be read on a computer or smart device such as a tablet or iPhone. 

Why read an eBook?

  • Accessible Everywhere: Many books can be downloaded on a single device, making it easy to carry around and taking up less space. And books can be downloaded from anywhere, meaning you do not have to leave your home to get a new book.
  • Accessibility Options: Most reading apps allow for increased font size, changing of the font style, and read-aloud features. Digital book platforms also have a wider selection of audiobooks.
  • Interactive Elements: Reading apps also have features where you can highlight text, bookmark pages, take notes, and search for dictionary definitions. You can even search the text and use hyperlinks to access extra information.
