How to access the 13,000+ e-Books of The TMC Library
About our e-Books

The TMC Library owns over 13,000 e-books. They are accessible while in the Library and offsite using your Resource Access login.

This Research Guide will highlight just a few of our larger e-book collections.

Things to know about e-Books

  • Sometimes when you try to access an e-book you will get a message saying it's currently in use. This is because the Library's subscription only allows that book to be used by one user at a time. Please wait a little while and try it again.
  • While none of our e-books can be downloaded to a tablet/reader, you can access and view them on your tablet.
  • E-books come from different publishers and therefore each interface and ease of use will be different--the Library has no control over this.
  • Occasionally e-books will have watermarks that appear on the page when you print.
  • You may only be able to print one chapter/section/page at a time depending on what each individual publisher will allow.
  • E-books can almost always be keyword searched.
  • You may be able to highlight or annotate e-books but you will usually need to register a personal profile before doing so.
Accessing e-Books

From the TMC Library's homepage click on the  button and use either the eBooks link on the left or the eBooks tab in the center search box.

Also on that resources page under the Top Databases section you will find links to the e-Books in AccessMedicine and Stat!Ref.
