If you’ve been to the library lately, you might have noticed one of our displays. All of the campuses work hard to offer rotating displays on a wide variety of topics. Sometimes they highlight new materials in our collection, sometimes they showcase a particular program or topic, and often they focus on titles related to a specific class that’s being offered this term.
But, what if you can’t make it to campus or you’re an online student? Why not check out some of the eBook titles listed below? These are just a sample of those that relate to the Introduction to Space class. In order to access e-books, log-in to the Library Splash page and click on “eBrary” under E-Books in the blue databases box. You can search by the subject or by the title.
