E-books: EBSCO E-books

Locating EBSCO E-books in the Catalog

The law library provides access to select law-related e-books through EBSCO. EBSCO titles are accessible through the Chickasaw Nation Law Library at Oklahoma City University School of Law's online catalog. (For assistance using the catalog, consult the "Searching the Catalog" LibGuide or speak with a librarian.)

When you have located a book in the catalog, select the link "EBSCO eBooks: Click here for online access to this title." and you will then be taken to the EBSCO platform. From here you can view the book directly in your web browser or, in many instances, download the book to your computer or mobile device. If you are off-campus, you will be be prompted to enter your Oklahoma City University network username and password before being redirected to EBSCO.

Law students also have access to the EBSCO titles available through the Oklahoma City University Dulaney-Browne Library by searching Ebooks through Dulaney-Browne's website.
