EBSCO eBooks (formerly known as NetLibrary) - around 50,000 e-books, including many academic titles published within the last 15 years. A number of the more recent titles are listed in and accessible from the library catalog; all are accessible through EBSCO's newly developed eBooks database.
ebrary Academic Complete - a subscription database of approximately 70,000 academic e-books in a variety of subject areas, primarily from 2000 to the present. None of these books are listed in the library catalog; rather, they must be accessed through the ebrary database.
Springer eBooks - a collection of 700 English-language e-books in the areas of business & economics, biomedical & life sciences, and behavioral sciences, published in 2011. All of these titles are listed in and linked to from the library catalog (which is the best point of access for them).
We have also completed a library guide explaining the ins and outs of these three e-book collections (their search pages, software requirements, viewing options, and check-out conventions), plus a few others we have access to. The guide is available at http://libguides.bsc.edu/ebooks. We welcome your questions and comments, as well as suggestions for additional freely available e-book collections to include in the last section of the guide.

The evening will begin with a screening of the 1932 movie Love Me Tonight, starring Maurice Chevalier and Jeannette MacDonald and directed by "one of the most talented, creative filmmakers of all time", Rouben Mamoulian. The film also features songs from the legendary Rodgers & Hart, such as "Isn't It Romantic", "Song of Paree", and "A Woman Needs Something Like That". After the film, Dr. David Resha, BSC Assistant Professor of Media and Film Studies, will discuss different aspects of it, specifically the stylistic innovations and the conventions of the integrated musical.
This event is free and open to the public, and complements the exhibit "A Fine Romance: Jewish Songwriters, American Songs, 1910-1965" which will be on display in the BSC Library through October 21.
