ENGL1A, Herman: Finding Online Books

Books that may help

Why Books?

  • For comprehensive and in-depth information
  • To put your topic in context with other important issues
  • Historical information
  • Summaries of research to support your argument
  • To find other sources of information (using the book's bibliography)


The Foothill College Library has over 120,000 multi-disciplinary academic eBooks, many of which are downloadable to a tablet or e-reader.  The best way to find our eBooks is to go to the library home page and click on the FIND BOOKS tab. When you do, you'll notice that a link for EBSCO E-Books appears. It will take you to the eBook Academic Collection from EBSCOhost.
