You can find e-books in the library catalog.  Follow the links as you would to find the call number of a print book: "Click here for call numbers and availability" then "Click here to access this Five College electronic resource" link.  Login with your MHC account and you will be taken to the E-Book page.

Click "Read online" to read the book online. After 10 minutes you can choose to check the book out to continue reading.  You can continue to read online, or download the book to read on your mobile device or computer.  You will need Adobe Digital Editions installed, and an Adobe Digital Editions account (both free) to read the downloaded version of the book (but not the online version on the EBL site).

Once you've checked a book out, you can get back to the Ebook page by either finding the book in the catalog again or going to for an EBL e-book (most of our e-books), or follow the link from the LITS Find Books and More page for e-books from other collections.

If you have trouble, please feel free to stop by the Research Help Desk for a demo!
