E-Books at Princeton

Princeton University Libraries have a large collection of e-books that can be viewed or downloaded on your computer or mobile device. Princeton's e-books are accessible and searchable via Princeton's Library Catalog. However, there are many commonly used titles in e-book format that you might not think to look for in the catalog. The first part of this guide provides direct links to reference e-books in support of activities and research at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory.

The e-book collections come from different publishers (AIP, APS, IOP, etc.) and providers (Safari, Knovel, Ebrary, etc.) with different websites, licensing restrictions, formats, and bonus features. Knowing how to use the various collections from these different providers can help enhance your e-book searching or reading experience. The second part of this guide will help you search for and use the different e-books in the Princeton University Libraries collection.
