The Hooley-Bundschu Library provides access
to a number of ebook packages, which allows Avila students, faculty, and staff the
ability to read "thousands" of books online. Each of these ebook packages allows ebooks
to be read through the browser, and some ebook packages also allow downloading for offline
reading or transfer to another device like a PDA or dedicated ebook reader.
Many ebooks are formatted as PDFs, and thus require no additional software to
view (we note below any exceptions to this rule). Avila's ebooks can be located via a
search of the "online catalog."
