netLibrary is Shorter University's collection of nearly 40,000 electronic books. These are complete electronic reprints of books that have been published in paper that may be browsed and read online.
To access netLibrary directly, point your browser to http://www.netlibrary.com. E-books are listed in Shorter's library catalog just like any other book. They have the words "computer file" or "electronic resource" in brackets1 after the main title to distinguish them from their print counterparts. The book record for these items has an extra field, labeled "Electronic location and access,"2 which contains a link to the full text of the book (see below).
Click on the link to reveal the full-text of the book (see below).
If you have not already done so, register to use netLibrary by clicking the "Create a free account"3 link (upper right-hand corner, in plum, in the illustration above). Invent a user name and a password for yourself, and your account will be established. Please note that you must register using a computer at one of the Shorter University Libraries. Off-campus students may call the library to request that an account be set up for them. After registration, you may access netLibrary from any computer.
To check the book out, click on "Check out for 4 hours"4 and sign in using your user name and password. During the four-hour time period, no one else may view the e-book you have checked out.
The book's table of contents5 will appear in the left viewing pane. To navigate to a particular chapter, simply click on its blue-highlighted title. A particular page may be reached by entering its number in the "Page" box6 near the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Pages may be "turned" back and forth by using the "Previous"7 and "Next"8 buttons at the top right. The full-text of the e-book may be searched using the search function at the bottom left of the screen.
