Downloading e-books from the library collection

This guide provides instructions on how you can download e-books in the library collection from several different platforms.

E-books in the library

Langara Library has many e-books in its collection. These enable better access since users can read them from anywhere, but many do have limits on the number of users that can use them at the same time -- much like a print book. You can view the access limits when looking at the record for the book on the e-book platform.

If you cannot access an e-book, check whether it is limited to 1 user at a time. If it is, wait a bit and try to access the book later.
