New e-resources

We are pleased to announce two new electronic resources available to the Edgewood College community:

Libby: Ebooks and Audiobooks

Borrow ebooks & audiobooks. Libby, the reading app from our library, built by Overdrive.In the past we've had many requests for ebooks and audiobooks, especially for leisure reading. We now have a subscription to Libby, which gives you access to ebooks in popular fiction, nonfiction, bestsellers, as well as electronic audiobooks.  Libby also includes non-fiction ebooks in career, technical, and academic subjects.

If you're already familiar with using the Libby app through a public library, our subscription works the same way. You can even have your Edgewood College account and your public library account on the same device (giving you access to more titles).

You will find links to Libby in our A-Z Resource List, and on the library home page (in the Ebooks, Audiobooks, & Streaming Video tab). 

To check out ebooks and audiobooks through Libby, install the Libby app on your device or use the web browser on your computer.

  • In the Libby app (or website), click "Sign In With My Card"
    • If you already use the Libby app for another library, go to the account screen and click "Add a Library."
  • Search for Edgewood College, click next.
  • Sign in with your Edgewood email and password.
  • Your Libby account is now ready, and you can start checking out ebooks and audiobooks.

For more info, see the help page, Getting Started with Libby.

New York Times website

The New York TimesTo provide more convenient access to current news, we now have a campus subscription to the New York Times website.  First time users will have to create a New York Times account by connecting through our website. 

You will find links to the New York Times (and instructions for creating an account) in the library's A-Z Databases page, and a few of our research guides including the News & Current Events guide.

Note: Our subscription includes news only. No additional add-ons.
