Can public patrons access ebooks?

I am not a student, faculty, or staff member of UT Tyler but would like to access eBooks, electronic journals, or databases.

Public patrons can access most of the library's electronic resources (journals, databases, streaming media, ebooks, etc.) by signing in to one of the public computers on the 2nd floor. They will need a courtesy borrower card (available at circulation desk on the second floor).

Public patrons can not access the eBooks on Demand program or eBrary eBooks. However, eBooks on EBSCOhost, Springer eBooks, InfoSci Books, Salem Press eBooks, and others are available from the public computers.

If you want to access ebooks from home it is possible to download some books onto a thumb drive or other device and load them onto your computer at home. You will need to install Adobe Digital Editions on your home computer. The ebook will expire in 7-14 days. For assistance contact the reference desk.
