E-BOOKS

E-books (electronic books) are actual print books that have been digitized.  The e-book format looks exactly like the real book.  You may access these from school or from home.

Go to middletownk12.org. Click Students in the orange tool bar; then scroll down to Resources Center. Look at the left-hand column for e-Book Resources and scroll down to eBooks for H.S. South Only.  Both the Gale and Facts on File e-books are listed there. (If you are doing this from Home, consult the green remote access brochure for logon information.  You may pick up a copy at the Reference Desk)

Both of the ‘bundles’ of e-books below utilize federated searching.  This means you can put your term in the basic search box and it will search all of the e-books in that particular bundle at once.
