Guide to using e-readers.

Gadget Bar

The Tarrant County College Libraries provide access to a substantial collection of digital books, journals, newspapers, numeric datasets, and other computer-based information resources (digital content).

At the same time an increasing number of students, faculty, and staff are transitioning from desktop computing to hand-held devices such as tablets, e-readers and smart phones.

So, what e-books and other digital content from the library can you use on these digital devices?

Your Tarrant County College libraries have procured several different e-readers and tested how they work with Libraries digital content.

Our findings are posted here—click the tabs above to read what we've learned. You'll also find some suggestions both on how to access e-content directly from the devices and on how to copy PC-based content to the devices.
