E-Books at Falvey: A New Guide

By Abby Cengel

Not all e-books are alike. Depending on the publisher, you may find restrictions on downloads, borrowing periods, and even the number of pages you can print from each book. To add to the confusion, e-book providers aren’t always clear on their individual restrictions.  

Thankfully, you don’t have to figure out ebooks on your own. Falvey is providing a new e-book guide that will give you all the help you need! Just visit Ebooks at Villanova 


The guide provides a run-down of Falvey’s major e-book collections and helpful hints!

The guide also includes: 

  • Answers to commonly asked questions about e-books
  • Step-by-step instructions for finding, downloading, and printing e-books
  • Recommended resources from e-book providers for additional help

With this guide, you’ll be an e-book pro in no time!


Still have questions? Feel free to contact any of our friendly librarians for additional help!
