E-books are online books that can be read within your web browser. Some but not all can be downloaded to your device.
You can find many e-books with Ones SEarch and others within the AU Library catalog.. You can also search in individual e-book collections. Ashland University has these e-book collections:
(all topics, use OnesSearch)
(includes health encyclopedias)
(includes Public Health & Epidemiology)
(includes medicine & public health)
(focus on history, humanities)
(technology, digital media, and business)
