Our collection of electronic books (e-books) contains 3,772 copyrighted books and thousands of public domain titles. The copyrighted e-books are also available via our online Catalog.
A valid New York State Library borrower's card with a P number is required to access copyrighted e-books.
If you are accessing an e-book via the Online Databases, Indexes and Reference Sources page, click on "eBook Collection."
