The library provides many treatises, encyclopedias, and other resources in eBook format. Visit our Using eBooks guide for a breakdown of eBook providers.
You can also find eBooks in our catalog by limiting searches to electronic resources. Here's how:
If you are having trouble locating a resource or need recommendations, please contact the library's reference department.
HathiTrust is providing temporary access to digitized versions of some resources that would otherwise only be available in print. This database is especially useful for older materials, such as out-of-print editions of legal encyclopedias and dictionaries.
Visit https://www.hathitrust.org/ and select "LOG IN" in the top right corner. You will be asked to select your "partner institution" (University of Colorado Boulder) and log in with your university ID. Once logged in, you can "check out" materials. Just be sure to "return" them when you are done—access is limited to one person in the university at a time.
More information on HathiTrust's Emergency Temporary Access Service is available here.
Some partner libraries provide remote access to eBooks and videos through Prospector. CU Boulder students, staff, and faculty can use Prospector to borrow eBooks published by Springer and Elsevier that would otherwise be unavailable in our collections.
