Welcome - Knowledge Center E-reader Bar
The University Libraries provide access to a substantial collection of digital books, journals, newspapers, numeric datasets, and other computer-based information resources (digital content).
At the same time an increasing number of UNR students, faculty, and staff are transitioning from desktop computing to hand-held devices such as tablets, e-readers and smart phones.
Which prompts the question: what e-books and other digital content from the library can you use on these digital devices?
Rather than having you all discover that by trial and error (and a potentially large investment), we’ve procured several different e-readers and tested how they work with Libraries digital content.
Our findings are posted here—click the tabs above to read what we've learned.You'll also find some suggestions both on how to access e-content directly from the devices and on how to copy PC-based content to the devices.
