What is an ebook?

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

Searching is available via Saint Search.

Ebook 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 ebooks 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 ebook 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.
