Accessing MUHC eBooks

Over 700 eBooks are available via the EBSCOhost platform.

Focusing primarily but not exclusively, on nursing topics, the collection includes:

  • clinical guides
  • evidence-based practice manuals
  • practical handbooks
  • professional development titles.

1. From an MUHC computer

Visit the EBSCOhost eBooks platform website to either browse or search. You can also find available eBooks using the MUHC library catalogue. The full access guide can be found here.

No login required EXCEPT if you want to access the eBook offline on your computer.

2. From your personal computer

Same steps than from an MUHC computer EXCEPT that you have to log in first via the proxy.

Instructions on how to access eResources from home are available at https://muhclibraries.ca/proxy including a step-by-step video demonstration.

3. From your personal smartphone or tablet

It is theoretically possible to borrow a book to read on your mobile device.

Unfortunately, the usual applications used for reading eBooks (such as BlueFire Reader, Adobe Digital Editions, OverDrive, etc.) do not consistently work with all device types and eBook types. If you have a tablet, you should be able to read eBooks with your device’s navigator (Chrome or Safari).

For more details, or to learn whether your device and the book you want are compatible, please contact a library staff member.
