E-Books at ODU Libraries

Electronic Books at ODU Libraries

ODU Libraries provide a growing number of e-books for our users. In general, when a book order is made, we will purchase the electronic edition (if available) rather than print.

A large number of our e-books come from two providers: EBL and Ebrary. These providers enable the Libraries to get e-books from many different publishers. We also buy e-books in collections from single publishers. We explain how to use e-books from our many providers in this guide.

You may also consider browsing through some of the general or subject-specific collections listed in this guide.

  • Not all books are available in e-book format.  
  • Off-campus, our e-books are restricted to registered ODU faculty, staff, and students.
  • Most library e-book collections are presented in formats that are intended for viewing in a browser on a computer (as opposed to an e-book reader).
