Now that we are working and learning from a virtual environment, the need for electronic access to resources is in high-demand. Even though the Library provides access to thousands of electronic resources, not all resources are created equal. We encourage you to investigate whether there is an electronic version of a title you are interested in.
The following are some suggestions:
- Does the NYMC Library own this title? If you didn’t find it from the library homepage, check the library’s electronic resource portal.
- Check your local library. Most local libraries offer a variety of electronic resources to their patrons.
- Apply for New York Public Library access through SimplyE, for NYS residents.
- Check WorldCat. This database displays holdings for libraries worldwide, including ours.
- Search open access collections. There are a variety of electronic books available from a host of places:
- Purchase textbooks directly from eCampus or rent a copy from Amazon.
- Can’t find the book for free? You may borrow a chapter or the print edition via interlibrary loan.
- When all else fails, submit a resource suggestion and we will look into ways of providing access.
Still not having any luck? Contact the library to work with a Librarian.
