Here are two subscriptions to eBook databases. Ebook Central is massive database of academic ebooks that all students can borrow and read at the same time.


The ebooks in Sora are selected by BC librarians and typically allow only one user to read/listen at a time. Once you have a Brooklyn Public Library card and PIN, you will be able to add this library to your Sora account to access their ebook collection.
