Electronic books (also known as e-books or eBooks) are long-form documents that are available in a digital format.  They are meant to be read using a computer or another device, such as an eReader, tablet or phone.

Walsh University provides many ways to gain access to eBooks including collections available through the OhioLINK consortium and items we have purchased specifically to support our curriculum.  This guide will highlight those collections as well as how to work with downloading to specific devices and using mobile applications or "apps". 

Additionally, there are many e-book collections available freely on the web.
