Ebook Collections

Fordham Library Catalog

Search catalog for books, ebooks, periodicals, government documents, videos, maps etc. held by Fordham at all campuses.

Accessing an E-book

  • Find the e-book in the Library Catalog.
     
  • Locate the e-book in your results; the notation will say [electronic resource] within or at the end of the title.
     
  • Click on the small, blue letters URL or the actual url to open the e-book in the Item Information section of the record.
     
  • Log off as soon as you are finished; many e-books accommodate only one user at a time.
