Internet Sources for Electronic Texts

There are many sources of electronic books on the Internet. The one thing to note about the books available through these sites is that they are usually older works that are "in the public domain," meaning they are no longer covered by copyright. These books may be historically useful, but they will, of course, not contain recent information. For newer electronic books, use ebrary and the other ebook databases available on the "Electronic Books" tab.
