Here are a few places you can find eBooks; from off campus you will log in with your myNOVA username and password (the same ones you use to access Blackboard, student email, etc.). More information on downloading eBooks.
...Write down the book's Call Number. The call number is basically the book's address, and is what you will use to find the book on the shelf.
(eBooks do not have call numbers. You will view them online.)
