E-books: Accessing and Using: Start Here

This guide shows you how to use each of the different kinds of E-books available at the CR Library

E-book collections

All E-books are included in the library's book catalog, see link below, "College of the Redwoods Library Catalog." A search in the catalog will find print books, textbooks on reserve, E-books, videos on DVD or online.  This is the BEST WAY TO FIND E-BOOKS ABOUT YOUR TOPIC. You can also search or browse each E-book collection by itself. Below are links to the collections, if you want to dive in and try it out. Click the tabs for more information about each collection. 

Remote Login Required

If you are off campus or using a wireless device while on campus, you will be prompted to login. You will see the screen shown below. 

Remote login is required to prove that you are a student at College of the Redwoods, because these library databases are not free, open website available to anyone. Library resources are valuable and often expensive, because the information provided is reliable, credible, and based on a lot of work by many people. The library pays for student, faculty, and staff access.
