Comp II: Literature Review: eBrary Academic Complete eBooks


eBrary Academic CompleteA growing and changing collection of 110,000+ e-books in many different academic subject areas. This collection includes books from university presses and other academic publishers first published in recent decades, but also selected classic works dating as far back as 1628. 

Although the fiction collection is fairly substantial (over 1600 titles), you will not find the latest best sellers. The collection does include classic works by such authors as Thomas Hardy, Shakespeare, Chaucer, Jane Austen, Tolstoy, Mark Twain, Chekov, among others. Even if you cannot find the book you are seeking in eBrary, it is an ideal source for research related to your book selections, including authors, historical periods, cultural issues, etc.
