eBooks - scholarly resource - although not peer-reviewed!

Most NCC eBooks are from academic publishers and qualify as scholarly resources. The vast majority of NCC's library's books -- 86% -- are now eBooks. To see what's available, browse the collection. To search for a book on specific topic search all ebooks at the same time in NCC Library OneSearch on library homepage. (Choose eBooks tab).

Note: NCC eBooks are not "peer-reviewed." The peer-review filter on library site limits search results to journal articles; it will eliminate eBooks. If your assignment specifies peer-reviewed resources, students will miss out on eBooks. Consider asking students to search for eBooks as well as peer-reviewed articles.

To use an eBook -- in whole or in part--in Canvas, cut and paste the "Permalink" into the course.
