Accessing eBooks

To access the full-text of eBooks subsctiptions (ebrary & EBSCO) from off-campus you must be a current MSSU student, faculty or staff member with a username and PIN.  If you don't know or can't remember your Missouri Southern Username or PIN, please contact the IT Help Desk.

Google Books

Why use Google Books?

Google Books searches the full-text of books.  It is great for narrow topics because it lets you search within the text of books--you can see the table of contents, index or a portion of the contents of the book.  You can then locate the book in a nearby library.

Current in print copyrighted books are not full text. Out of print but still copyrighted books will show 20% of the book. Books in the public domain (pre 1923) are completely full text.
