Most of the CSM Library database are published by three companies: EBSCO, PROQUEST and GALE. Interfaces to databases published by one company differ from the interfaces published by another. Interfaces to database published by the same company tend to look similar.
There are two things to remember about ebooks in the CSM collections:
1. eBooks, unlike printed books, do not share a catalog. Each ebook database must be accessed and searched separately (see the list/icons below)
2. You need a library card to access ebooks online off-campus, and to download them to your computer. In addition, in some cases you will be asked to create a separate (free) account.
