Faculty/Lecturer Library E-book Request
What is a Library E-book?
Library e-books can be read for free online using only a browser and NetID (emich login). Previous experiments funded by an eFellows grant and a Women in Philanthropy grant showed that library e-books can help ensure that all students have access to reading materials.
How do I request a Library e-book for my course?
Simply fill out the online form below. You may use the form more than once to request other titles.
When will I know if the requested book will be purchased?
- Only some publishers* offer library e-book versions of books and availability can vary by title. We’ll let you know soon after you submit a request if the title is not available as a library e-book.
- We will email you to let you know if an order has been placed for your e-book title. When the e-book becomes available, we will send you a 2nd email with a link to the e-book.
*These publishers never offer library e-books: Pearson, Cengage, McGraw-Hill, Longman.
What is expected of requesting professors?
If your title is purchased as a library e-book, you will be expected to:
- Notify your students about the e-book on your syllabus, via email, and via a link from your course in Canvas (if you use Canvas).
If you have questions, contact your subject librarian.
