Philosophy & Religion: Finding Books/eBooks

Reading eBooks

There are three ways to read an eBook through Milner Library:

  1. Read the book on your browser
  2. Download the book onto your laptop or tablet
  3. Print one or more pages (requires one of the first two options)

If you are on campus, you will automatically have access to the available ebooks through the Milner catalog, and ISU server. If you are off campus, you will be prompted to log in using your ULID and password before you can gain access to the book.

If you need help downloading or printing an eBook, please consult Milner's eBook Guide.
