The ebooks page

Recommended by Sally Murray, Librarian

One of my favorite pages is the ebooks page!!!  The library has access to over 700,000 ebooks but there are some on this page that we’ve selected as especially useful. You can get the MLA Handbook and the Chicago Manual of Style to help you create citations.   

There are Reference Collections of ebooks which are  excellent places to start research on topics you don’t know much about!  Want to know who was in a war, what years was it fought, who won, major battles – try reference collections! 

There is a tab for Dictionaries and Encyclopedias.  We have some in English and in French.  One box has two major dictionaries – The Oxford English Dictionary and Le Grand Robert.  The library suggests encyclopedias for basic information about topics which can help you figure out what terms to use in your searching for articles and books!  Encyclopaedia Britannica Online and Encyclopaedia Universalis are two important sets you can use to get started. 

These pages are rich in content.  Look at the tab for Digital Libraries and Theses.  You will find the enormous French online library, Gallica, put out by the National Library of France.  You can see digital images of original documents and books from centuries back!!  

Don’t miss out!  Use the Library Homepage to help you with academic research and ask your AUP librarians if you need help.  We look forward to working with you.
