Linking Library eBooks in BeachBoard

Faculty wanting to use eBooks in class:

Library ebooks are purchased by the library (and not available freely to the general public).  To provide CSULB students access to these titles, links to individual ebooks must be routed via the library's server.

To link to a library ebook yourself:

  1. Find the ebook in the Library Catalog
  2. Right-click on the "Available Online" link
  3. Choose "copy shortcut" or "copy link location"
  4. Paste the URL in Beachboard

Note: Be aware than many e-book titles have a "1 simultaneous user" restriction.

You may also put eBooks on Reserve for your class.

Contact your librarian for help.

eBooks on Reserve

The eBooks on Reserve program has been discontinued except for a few select titles requested by faculty.
