ebooks at Walla Walla University Libraries

Walla Walla University Libraries have ebooks from three different venders: eBrary, EBSCOhost/Netlibrary, and the Orbis Cascade Alliance Pilot project (EBL). This libguide will help you learn to find ebooks in our library catalog, will explain the difference between the three types of ebooks, and will provide instructions for accessing and downloading those ebooks.

Note: You will need to install Bluefire Reader (Windows) or Adobe Digital Editions (Windows/Mac) on your computer and create an Adobe ID to download ebooks. 

We recommend Bluefire Reader for Windows users, because if you use Bluefire Reader on your mobile device as well as your desktop, you can syncronize your bookmarks and annotations between devices.

If you use Adobe Digital Editions, we recommend version 2.0 instead of one of the newer versions for reasons of user privacy and ereader compatibility.



Searching for ebooks

The easiest way to find an ebook is to conduct a keyword search from the search bar on the library’s homepage.

 Once you type in your search term(s), you will end up with a list of results that match them. On the left side of the screen, there will be a section that says Refine Results. Click "eBooks" to filter your search results. 


You can also click the Advanced Search link under the main search bar and limit your material type to eBooks.

Download lengths

When you download an ebook, you're checking it out from the library, so there is a limit on how long you have access to the file. Checkout lengths vary depending on the ebook vendor.  There are no late fees, because ebooks do not have to be returned. When your checkout time is up, the ebook file expires and becomes inaccessable. You can just delete it from your device/computer. If you still need the ebook, you may download it again.
