Library Services for International Distance Learners: E-Books

Where to Start

Always start from the library website or by logging into the MyIIT portal and clicking on the red library e-resources icon, when you want to access an e-book database.  Most databases need to know that you are authorized to access their materials.  When you go to a database's web site it will not be able to identify that you are an approved user.  When you go through an IIT library page you will be able to authenticate correctly and use the database right away.


Listed below are a few of our e-book providers. You can find more e-books options here. We also created a guide to finding and using e-books.
