Spotlight on eBooks


Our library has access to over 200,000 different eBooks. Many of these eBooks have been published within the past few years, making their information up-to-date and relevant.

Do you know how to access an eBook through the library website?

All of these books can be accessed simply by searching the catalog for your preferred topic and checking the “eBook” option box on the left of the page (under the “Format” tab). Then, the catalog will update to show all of the eBooks available on your topic. Click on any of the book titles to see more information. The book’s page will include a link, usually to a site like EBSCOhost, which will in turn provide the eBook’s pages.

If you need to access an eBook while off campus, remember to log in to our system with your Union credentials. Then you will be able to see the eBook.


For help in citing eBooks, ask our staff about our Ready Reference books. The library holds Turabian, MLA, APA, and other handbooks on citation. You can also schedule an appointment with a Research Coach or visit the Research desk for extra help. We are happy to assist you!

Featured Philosopher: Søren Kierkegaard


On this day in 1813, Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard was born in Copenhagen. Throughout his life, Kierkegaard wrote about theology, existence, culture, and belief. Criticizing the attitudes of the Church of Denmark, Kierkegaard posited instead that individual faith was of the highest importance. Cultivating a personal understanding of Christian spirituality, in opposition to a collective one, spurred Kierkegaard to write such works as Fear and Trembling, Either/Or, and Purity of Heart is to Will One Thing.

Kierkegaard used several pseudonyms for his writing, embracing the mysterious in both his theology and his authorial life. A few of his most famous ones were Johannes de Silentio (author of Fear and Trembling), Hilarius Bookbinder (author of Stages on Life’s Way), and Young Man (author of Repetition).

While Kierkegaard died in 1855, his books live on here in our library. Click this link for a full listing of all the Kierkegaard-related titles we have!
