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.

Each collection varies in terms of usage, printing and access capabilities. See the collection specific information (tabs above) for further details.
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.
The librarians are happy to help answer e-book questions, help set up devices and troubleshoot problems. You are encouraged to fill out this form for an appointment.
