E-books Now Available!

Frostburg State University students, faculty and staff now have access to a collection of 7,500 e-books - and growing!

The Library's current e-book collection is hosted on the eBooks on EBSCOhost database available in Research Port.  Many of these titles are also available by searching catalogUSMAI.  Simply click on the Find It button to access titles listed with a location of "E-books."  Off-campus users are required to sign-in using the barcode number located on the front of their FSU ID card and last name.

E-books may be viewed directly on the eBooks on EBSCOhost database or downloaded to a supported e-book reader.  Students, faculty and staff who wish to download an e-book must first download Adobe Digital Editions and create a Personal EBSCOhost Account. Checkout periods for downloaded e-books range from 2 hours to 7 days.

Links to brief EBSCOhost tutorials explaining how to use the eBooks on EBSCOhost database - as well as other resources - are available on the Ort Library website.

If you have any questions regarding e-books (or any other Library service for that matter!), please feel free to email or chat with a librarian, call us at 301-687-4424 or see us in person by stopping by the Ort Library Reference Desk.
