Need a Break? Read a Book – ASU Library Provides Free E-Book Access

Need a BreakDo you have a long list of books that you’ve been meaning to read?  You have many resources available to you simply by virtue of being a member of the ASU community. ASU libraries has a plethora of resources for you to access eBooks digitally on virtually any device.  Notably, we have access to ProQuest’s eBook Central. This is but one of the many eBook platforms that we subscribe to for students, staff, and faculty.  So grab a beverage, settle into your favorite seat, and let yourself get lost in a book.

The Internet Archive just announced the opening of the National Emergency Library which is a collection of books that supports emergency remote teaching, research activities, independent scholarship, and intellectual stimulation while universities, schools, training centers, and libraries are closed.

In addition to eBooks, we also have access to free streaming services for documentaries and TV shows like Kanopy, Films on Demand, and Filmakers Library Online.

As always, we are happy to help you gain access to these resources if you would like to contact us.

I would also like to note the fantastic supplemental resources that we’ve received from some of the publishers to help you study remotely. A wide range of free digital textbooks and study guides have been made available to students who are unable to get to the physical library. You can read about them in our Remote Access to Law Library Resources: COVID-19 Response LibGuide.
