UNH has curtailed operations for Wednesday, January 28. Dimond Library will be open from noon to 7pm. All other library locations will be closed. Learn more.


Your search results from any of the library’s catalogs may include links to e-books (electronic books). Note that the most recent edition or relevant book on your topic may not be an e-book.

Want Your Results to Include E-Books Only?

Use the E-Books tab on the library home page.

The BLC WorldCat catalog does not include links to all e-books to which UNH has access, so use the UNH library catalog for best results when searching for e-books.

E-Book Collections

You can also search or browse individual e-book collections owned by the UNH Library.

Viewing E-Books

Generally e-books can be viewed online if you are on the UNH campus network or from off campus (for UNH students, faculty, and staff). Some e-books may require log in with your UNH IT ID username and password even when on the campus network.

You will only be able to view e-books that are licensed at UNH (not to other libraries) or that are open access.

E-Book Features

Features such as searching within a book, copying, printing, annotating, etc. vary depending on the e-book website. In most cases, the amount of an e-book that you may print or copy is limited by the publisher or vendor.

Downloading E-Books

The ability to download e-books to your personal computer or e-book reader varies by publisher, e-book website, and available format. Borrowing periods for downloaded e-books as well as the ability to "return" or release e-books early also vary by publisher and website.
