Search your library’s content from within the LMS

Simply click “Add to Reading List” and your selections are saved

Annotate reading list items and copy other reading lists created at your institution.*The Curriculum Builder plugin is entirely hosted by EBSCO and includes implementation and integration with EDS.

* Please note that the full text to which an institution subscribes is sometimes subject to unique conditions for use as course materials, and the guidelines for each must be followed, as appropriate.

eBook Basics: Can I Use Them in the Classroom?

EBSCO eBooks can be used in the classroom or as a part of your course syllabus. Using e-books available from the library can be cost effective use of student textbook funds, particularly if the book is not something students intend to keep long-term, or if you’re only assigning a chapter or section of the work.

Using EBSCO eBooks provides some advantages over print books in addition to cost-savings. Students can:

  • Search within the titles for words or phrases
  • Save/email/print chapters or sections
  • Automatically generate bibliographic citations or export to bibliographic management tools
