How come the book I want isn't available as an Ebook?
Publishers don't create all books as ebooks. Furthermore, sometimes publishers only produce ebooks for individual purchase--like an Amazon Kindle ebook. You can request the librarian purchase an ebook version of a book using this form, but please understand we cannot control if it is available or not.
Are Ebooks downloadable?
Some ebooks are and others aren't. This is a feature enabled by a publisher and author. If you cannot download the text, it means you must read the text in the platform.
Can I read ebooks on my phone?
Some ebooks are available for mobil reading using SimplyE. If a book has a SimplyE option, you will see it in the CLIO record.
It's worth asking the librarian if there is an ebook you use for class available for the SimplyE platform. We can't always do it, but we will try!
