Resources by format

Here are listed guides for finding materials based on their formats.

The Virginia Tech Libraries have subscribed to a number of ebook packages, giving us access to hundreds of thousands of books online.

All allow reading the ebook through the browser, and many allow downloading for offline reading or transfer to a mobile device or dedicated ebook reader. Most of our ebooks are PDFs, and thus require no additional software to view. See each entry for formats and restrictions.

Search ebooks by title

Search the Ebook Title Database

Use Discovery Search to search for books on a topic | Find specific sources of ebooks

The Ebook Title Database includes all the ebooks to which we subscribe, plus many open access ebooks that anyone can access. You can search by the specific title of an ebook or its standard number (ISBN). It does not search the text within those ebooks.
