About the Emory Libraries ebook collections available to Emory students, faculty, and staff

Finding Subject Specific titles

E-books are published by many different publishers and within different e-book platforms. Librarians are available to assist you in locating subject-specific sources. We invite you to contact us directly with your questions. Or, you can browse our subject and class specific web pages at Research Guides by library where we list many resources by subject. 

If you don't find what you need, you can also request we purchase an e-version of a book. 

Popular Reading and Audiobook Collections

Students, faculty, and staff members with valid Emory University IDs may check out up to five books for 3 weeks with an option to renew.
