The Library strongly encourages faculty to select course readings that have been already licensed as electronic resources. To that end, Bates librarians have created these guides to finding ebooks and other resources universally available for students to use. We are happy to facilitate your use of these resources and, if necessary, to work with you to find other materials.
Our online collections can be searched via LibrarySearch+. Simply select the Full Text Online option in the upper left to limit to online resources.
Alternatively, you can search in the box below, which automatically limits to online only.
We subscribe or own a number of collections from select university presses. All of the below are also listed in LibrarySearch+.
OER are textbooks and other materials that are freely available online. The search engines below index OER across disciplines.
For even more resources for locating OER, please see our OER guide and contact your research librarian.
