UCF Library eBooks as Assigned Texts

UCF's Libraries offer thousands of full text online books that can be used in the classroom or by individual students to supplement class readings. Please contact your subject librarians in the UCF Libraries for help incorporating the books into your syllabi with authentication for off-campus access.

WARNING! Do not select an ebook from the UCF Libraries collection as an assigned text for class readings without first verifying that there are no limits on the number of simultaneous users.
