With access to ebooks from over 200 databases, there are a wealth of options available to help you find the information you need when you need it most. There are two ways to access ebooks in our collections: through the UCF Libraries catalog or by going to the specific database that contains the book you need.
Using the UCF Libraries Catalog
There are multiple ways to find ebooks using our libraries' catalog. First, you can use the search box at the top of this page.
Second, you can limit your search in our catalog to online resources:
All of the ebooks available through UCF libraries can be read on a PC or Mac.
Many of our eBooks can be downloaded and read on your computer or device. Some vendors will require you to use Adobe Digital Editions to download books. You will need an Adobe ID and Adobe Digital Editions or another App such as BlueFire Reader to access these books.
To get an ID or to change or reset your password, go to the Adobe.com site and click Sign In.
Once you find an eBook, follow any instructions from the host site to view or download the eBook.
In most cases that will get the content onto your Kindle or other reader. For some eBooks you will have the content for a limited time – either 24 hour or 7 days. Also, most of the EBSCO eBooks only allow one person to use the book at a time, and a person can check the eBook out for up to 7 days.
