You have a few options for accessing e-books. 

1.  Some e-books are accessible directly through Minerva, the online catalog, and can be read on your computer. Browse our list of ebooks in the Library's online catalog here

2.  Many e-book are available through Summon.  To log in to Summon to see e-books, use your student log-in and student ID#, just like you do for accessing your YCCC email or Blackboard.

3.  Other e-books are loaded onto the Library's Kindle e-readers.  You can check out the Kindles at the Library with a valid student ID, or a faculty/staff library card.  Kindles circulate for three weeks.

The Kindle e-readers are pre-loaded with titles.  Here is a full Table of Contents.

4.  You can also download e-books for free from Maine's Download Library with your valid student ID, or faculty/staff library card.  Learn more.
