Accessing eBooks

Did you know that as a Green River student you have access to thousands of eBooks (PDF versions of print books, fully readable and searchable online) on a wide variety of topics? These are the same types of books that we have in the library and they are appropriate sources for many assignments.

  • Search directly in one of the linked ebook databases here, or try searching the library's catalog using the search box and tips below.

From the library homepage, use the Primo One Search, or search using the box below. Type in your search terms. On the results list, choose "Online Access" from the narrowing options on the left.

You can access any electronic resources, like eBooks, when you're off-campus by logging in with your student/staff credentials when prompted.
