Search for your book by title, author, or keyword using the search bar in the center of the library homepage.  Then in your list of results, you will see eBooks listed with a blue "View eBook" button (see below image).  Simply click that button to open and read the eBook in your browser (no formal check out needed).  You can also print, email, or download a limited number of pages. 

For a more detailed overview of how to find books (print and ebooks) on our campus, view our Finding Books video here:

We also have a database, called Overdrive that offers ebooks & audiobooks (yay!).  The books in Overdrive do need to be "checked out" before reading or listening.  To use Overdrive, simply download the Overdrive app onto your smartphone or tablet, find Las Positas College Library, browse the collection, and then click on the blue Borrow button to check an item out and download for up to 21 days.

Note that whenever using our resources through WiFi or off-campus, you will be prompted to log in with your WID and PW before the book or resource will open.  

Happy Searching!
