The UC Library has an e-preferred policy for buying books. This means that we purchase the electronic version in preference to print.
E-books have many advantages. Firstly they can be accessed anywhere with an internet connection. This means that you can access them 24/7 and you don’t even have to come onto campus. Also you can’t lose an electronic book and so you won’t be charged any fines or late fees.
E-books can be read online or you can download them to your home computer. You can print, make notes or search the text.
