What is an e-book?

An e-book is an electronic version of a printed book that can be viewed online via any PC connected to the Internet. Georgian College subscribes to over 200 marine related navigation and engineering e-books.

E-books are a great resource for students who are studying to write a Transport Canada Marine Safety exam.

How do I gain access to Georgian College’s list of e-books?

You must register as an e-book account user to gain access to any Georgian College e-book. Next, you will need to request a Georgian College Library card which will give you an access code, to gain access to the e-book site.

How do I register for an e-book account and what is the charge?
