E-books & Digital Streaming Audiobooks

Many e-books and digital audiobooks are now available and accessible through the UA Libraries Catalog.  These e-books can be accessed 24 hours a day and can be viewed on a computer, tablet, or other smart devices, and some may be downloaded.  Keep in mind that many e-books have restrictions on the number of users.

New Materials List

Discover the materials most recently purchased by the Library.  You will find newly added books, e-books, reference titles, audiovisual materials, and electronic journals added to the OhioLINK Electronic Journal Collection (EJC).  Lists are compiled monthly or bi-monthly, depending on the volume of purchases.  Visit the New Materials List guide regularly to stay current for materials of interest to you or your students.  Faculty remain the best promoter of library collections.  If you recommend specific materials to your students, they will be more likely to use the library and read!
