Q. How do I access e-books?
You have a few options for accessing e-books.
1. Some e-books are accessible directly through Minerva, the online catalog, and can be read on your computer. Browse our list of ebooks in the Library's online catalog here.
2. Many e-book are available through Summon. To log in to Summon to see e-books, use your student log-in and student ID#, just like you do for accessing your YCCC email or Blackboard.
