Library DIY

The e-book I need is not available through the library.

The Berntsen Library has a growing collection of e-books. When you find an e-book in CLICsearch, the book record will include links for accessing the book from one of the library's e-book databases.

If there is an e-book that is not available in CLICsearch, check to see whether the same title is available in print. Print editions can be requested from other CLIC libraries. 

If no CLIC library has the item but a print edition of that item exists elsewhere, you may request the print version (not an e-book version) through Interlibrary Loan.
