eBooks at MCC: eBooks for Research
A guide that walks through how to access eBooks through the MCC Library
There are two main types of eBooks in the MCC Library.
Reference databases are databases full of reference sources. These include:
Dictionaries and subject dictionaries
Encyclopedias and subject encyclopedias
These types of sources are generally used as background information. They don't contain the kind of information you would cite in your research, but they'll help you understand more about your topic and generate good search terms for your research.
A monograph is a book on a single subject. This is probably what comes to mind when thinking about an eBook. This type of source is very helpful for your research because you can learn a lot about your topic all in one place.
These books can either be written by an author or authors, or they can be edited books with each chapter or essay written by a different contributor.
