American University Library subscribes to a number of ebook collections. Remote access to most of the resources in this guide is restricted to AU students, faculty, and staff with current, valid AU IDs.
If you are looking for a particular ebook, search the WRLC Catalog by title or author to see if we have access to it. If you are looking to browse or search for ebooks on a particular topic, take a look at some of the general or subject-specific ebook collections that we have available.
This is the most common question that the reference librarians receive.
It is not a simple answer.
It depends on the publisher of the ebook and the type of e-reader you may have.
The best advice is to check the help manual of your e-reader as well as the help pages of the publisher platform.
Most American University Library ebooks do not work using proprietary devices, such as Kindle and NOOK, but will work on most tablets.
