We have multiple e-book collections, listed below. E-books will also appear in your search results. Look for Amherst College: Link to resource or Five Colleges: Link to resource.
To limit to e-books only in Discover, search for your keywords and then use the Format filter in your search results page.
Use the Library Location filter to select "Amherst College Online" to filter results to ebooks you can access from Amherst.
Check out our e-book Troubleshooting & downloading guide for issues with viewing or downloading e-books.
Google books can also be helpful, even if the book you're looking for isn't fully online. You can search for a title or a keyword, and be able to see snippets or preview pages. You might also be able to see tables of content or the index of a book to get other clues for your topic.
You can request a purchase for an e-book that we don't own, though not all will be available in that format.
