An electronic book is exactly the same as the printed version of the book, except that the complete, full text of the book is available online. The UCF Libraries purchases selected electronic books and lists these books in its online catalog for the convenience of UCF students, faculty, and staff.

A printable version of this guide is also available: eBooks PDF (107 KB).
