Accessing eBooks

Accessing eBooks at Your Public Library

Emory Library licenses limit access to ebook collections, such as our popular Overdrive Business AudioBooks, to current students, faculty, and staff.  However, many public libraries subscribe to Overdrive and other eBook platforms too!  All you need is your free library card.

The easiest way to see if your library has Overdrive eBooks is to Google your county name, public library, and Overdrive. Collections at nearby local libraries are linked below:

Georgia Residents

If you live in Georgia, call your local public library to learn about remote access to Galileo, a collection of business databases such as ABI/Inform. 

Locating libraries in other states

If you live in another state contact your local public library and ask if they subscribe to a consortium of databases for remote access by residents. You may also consider academic and state libraries. Many subscribe to business electronic and print resources that are licensed for use by the public.

Business School Libraries

Business school libraries often offer collections reflecting subject specializations of the school/program.  Although many electronic resources will be restricted to use by current students, the print reference collection and other sources may prove valuable.
