• E-Books

    Bush Library uses several content providers to serve up access to our electronic book content.

    All electronic books can be found using WorldCat Local. After selecting an electronic book title in WorldCat Local, the user is linked to a provider interface in which the book displays. E-book users can also search directly in these provider interfaces.

      Logging in

      If you are off-campus when you connect to e-book content, you will be taken first to Hamline's proxy server login page to verify that you are a current Hamline student.

    eBooks on EBSCOhost
