Are you a M.B.A. student at Salisbury University? If so, then this guide is for you!

Finding eBooks

Below are locations and methods for finding eBooks in our collections. If you need help accessing/downloading an eBook, refer to the next box (Access an eBook).

SU Libraries Search

  • Most eBooks are searchable through the SU Libraries All Types or Books & eBooks search boxes, just as with our print collection. To filter results to only eBooks, look to the left on the results screen. Under Format, checkmark eBooks (listed under Books).
  • Once you find a book, click on the View eBook link to view or download the text.


Specific Databases with eBooks

Accessing an eBook

Follow the screenshots below for help with viewing or downloading an eBook from EBSCOhost eBook Collection.

If you began your search using the SU Libraries Quick Search, you will start from the book's record, as shown below.

Access a book either online or by finding a print copy in the library.

  • Use the purple Find It link to locate the eBook within one of our database collections.


Use the Find It button to access Full text to an eBook

  • After accessing the Find It link, click on link for "Read full text at..." You may be prompted to login with your SU username and password at this time.


Select whether to download a copy or view the eBook online.

  • You have 2 options to access the eBook: either by reading the PDF Full Text online, from EBSCOhost's page, or by downloading a copy of the book to your device. Refer to screenshots below if you choose to download a copy.
  • The "Concurrent User Level" (listed last on the record) informs you how many patrons can access the book at the same time. Most common levels are Unlimited User Access (no limits) and 3 User Access (only 3 can access at a time; if the limit is reached, anyone else who tries to access the book will have the option to be placed on a "waitlist" to be notified when the book is available).


Sign in or create an EBSCO account to download an eBook

  • If you choose to download the book to view offline from your device, you will need to create a login with EBSCOhost. This is quick and easy to do. From there, sign into your account and you will be able to download the book.


Choose your checkout period and look at the viewing requirements before download the eBook.

  • Checkout period: This refers to the length of time the downloaded eBook will remain accessible from your device. You have a choice between 1 or 2 weeks. To access an eBook beyond this period, simply return to this page and re-download it.
  • Viewing Requirements: Before you complete the process, be sure to take note of the viewing requirements stated on this box. For view on desktops and smart phones, you will need to download a free application to view the eBook. Some may require you to create a separate login with that application.
