E-Books at Iowa State University

This guide provides an overview of the library's e-book providers.

E-Books for Veterinary Medicine

Electronic books are increasingly important to veterinary medicine. The collection of Vet related e-books continues to grow as titles become available due to the library acquiring every relevant title possible. E-books are accessible on- and off-campus, 24/7 via your NetID and password. Selected titles are listed below. The main platforms we purchase books from are ScienceDirect, Wiley Online Library, EbscoHost, ProQuest, and R2 from Rittenhouse. To see if we have a particular title available electronically, type in the title in the Quick Search box and look for 'online access' in the results list. 

Here are a few representative titles. Others can be found in the Spring/Fall VM 1-3 Books on Reserve course lists.
