The Bailey Library‚Äôs book collection has just doubled in size — on a trial basis for now till April 30.

The trial Ebrary e-book collection consists of over 52,000 college-level books in all subject areas. These e-books are:

* Device-agnostic. They are readable with a regular web browser on a computer, laptop, iPad or other mobile devices. Users can also annotate, create hyperlinks, etc.

* Accessible by multiple simultaneous users 24 x 7, at no cost to you. You need not check them out of the library, thus no overdue fines!

* Printable, up to 60 pages.

* Convertible from text to speech by downloading the Ebrary reader client.

Please try it out and tell the library staff what you think by filling out the survey.
