Berry students, faculty, and staff members may read ebooks online and download books on campus (an Ebook Central account is required for downloading) as well as off campus. 


Community users may access Ebook Central online only while on campus, but books downloaded for offline reading while on campus will remain available off campus.


Search for ebooks via the search box on the Library's web page, or go directly to Ebook Central, linked above.

Read online or download?

Read Online

If you want to rely on having an Internet connection, once you are signed in to your Ebook Central account, the Online Reader offers most functionality, including print/copy functionality, full text search, and the ability to highlight, bookmark and make notes. 

The Online Reader is web browser based, and is compatible with all popular web browsers (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera). No additional software is required to read online. 

If you are working on a computer that is shared by others, you should always choose Read Online.

Access the online reader via the purple Read Online button on the full record page, or via the Read this book link beside each ebook listed when you search directly in the Ebook Central database. 


For offline reading or for the added functionality afforded by special ebook readers, Ebook Central ebooks can be downloaded using buttons on the full record page or on the Download tab in the Online Reader.
