EBooks at Bowie State

This guide provides instructions and tips on how to find and use e-Books in Bowie's Thurgood Marshall Library collection.

How many people may use an eBook at any one time?

Answer: Usually only one person at a time may check-out a book (just like print books).  Multiple users, however, may browse the book until it is checked out. Also, you can place a hold on a book that is already checked-out. Since the loan period is short (usually 3 - 7 days) you can usually get an e-book faster than you can get a print book that has been checked out.
