How do I find an electronic book (e-book)?
Last Updated: May 24, 2019     Views: 50

Electronic books (e-books) work differently than print books. USM students have access to many, but not all, e-books in the URSUS catalog. 

  • Click on URSUS Advanced Search,
  • For Location select University of Southern Maine Libraries,
  • For Material Type select e-book,
  • Click on a title,
  • Click where it says USM Access, UM System-wide Access, or Maine InfoNet* 

*Maine InfoNet Download Library (CloudLibrary) is a free e-book and audio book service. 

If you are unable to find the e-book available to USM patrons, you can search for and request a print version of the book from another library through URSUS, MaineCat, or Interlibrary Loan.
