The TriCollege libraries are beginning a pilot program to offer e-books on demand to library patrons. The libraries have contracted with EBook Library (EBL) to load records into Tripod, and patrons will be able to access full-text e-books after authenticating via the EZ Proxy server. Subject areas will be expanded from our usual print offerings in order to give patrons a wider range of choices. In addition, e-books can be downloaded and read offline on a laptop and e-book reading devices supporting Adobe Digital Editions software.
