With Ebsco e-books, which appear in the catalog as an e-resource, you can either read the book online or download it for one week. The download is like checking it out from the library, and it requires you to sign up for an Ebsco account--this is a distinct account from your Georgetown username and password and just gives you the ability to download the books.

Here is a short video showing you how to read an e-book online and how to download it. Email us at if you have more questions.
