The Moorpark College Library has thousands of unique eBooks that be accessed remotely from any off-campus location.

All eBooks that come up in your search results will be noted with Available Online

Type your search words into the provided box. The search results include both print and electronic items. To limit your search results to eBooks only, click on the Resources Type link on the left side bar and choose Books and Book Chapters

Select the title (s) by clicking on the title or the Available Online link. You will be taken to the complete record. The display record includes a link to the full text and detailed information about the item.

In this example, to open the book, click on the NetLibrary link and you will access the digital content for the item. (note: if you are accessing this off-campus, you will be prompted to login to your MyVCCCD account). To access a specific chapter simply click on the chapter's title. To access the entire book, click on "eBook Full Text" or the download button.  

eBook Access Tips & Tricks

  1. Use the email feature to email yourself a specific chapter of an eBook that you are using. The chapter will show up in your email as a PDF file. 
  2. You may print 30-60 pages from an eBook by using the print feature. 
  3. Some eBooks can only be opened by one person at a time. If you open this book on a school computer, and then try to access it again on your laptop, it will tell you it is "in use" and cannot be opened. If the book you are wanting is "in use" please check back in about 30-60 minutes, to allow for check-in time.
