eBooks are digital versions of books, delivered online.
For-profit companies provide digital books at a cost. These cost money, either to the user (like Kindle books purchased though Amazon) or to the college or university providing them.
The collections of eBooks provided by Reynolds Libraries are purchased from for-profit companies by the college for use by students, faculty and staff.
Non-profit organizations also provide digital books at no cost to the end user. They may get their funding from foundations, colleges and universities, or federal, state and local governments.
The Reynolds Libraries provides access to a variety of eBook database collections that come from different eBook vendors.
