What is an e-book?

An e-book, short for electronic book, is a book in digital format.  Some books are born digital (were never in print previously) and others are digital copies of the print format.  E-books have grown steadily in numbers and preference with the advance of gadgets that are used to read the e-book in our increasing digital age.

Searching is available via Saint Search.

E-book Collections at Siena

Each collection varies in terms of usage, printing and access capabilities.  See the collection specific information (tabs above) for further details.

Off-campus access

The use of e-books is available off-campus for members of the Siena Community.  Once you have located a book in the catalog, click on the appropriate link to get to the e-book platform.  Before you land at the platform you will be prompted for your login credentials (the same login used for the computers on-campus).  Enter your credentials and you should then pass through to your desired e-book.
