  • K-8 E-Book Collection: Give K-8 students across all subject areas a quality learning experience with this interdisciplinary collection of more than 14,000 e-books. Students will appreciate the full-text e-book coverage to support their curricula and educators will welcome the access to curriculum guides and other time-saving resources.

The e-Books are in PDF.  They can be read online or downloaded.  To download requires that you have an EBSCO personal account (a Google account can be used to create an account and to and sign in to it), and an Adobe ID.  The downloaded title will then appear in, for example, Adobe Digital Editions or a similar Adobe sanctioned app.  For more details and instructions on use and downloading books, see: http://ebsco.libguides.com/ebooks/home .
