I can search all 800 books at one time and even search for a name?

  • Yes, the great advantage of the new site is the ability to do global searches. You will see the titles that contain the search terms along with the number of hits. When you highlight a title, you will see the hits along with a few words to add context.

Can I copy, paste, and print?

  • Of course, you can do those things. To respect our authors, we have placed limits on how much of any book you can print before asking us for permission. 

Can you bookmark pages, highlight portions, and add notes?

  • Yes, and it is easy. The site will guide you along the way 

Does the platform provide citations?

  • Yes. You can find citations in more than one place. Perhaps the easiest way to add the citation is when you have the book open and click on More book options.

Can I download the books and work remotely?

  • Yes, you can work remotely on a computer, laptop, tablet, Kindle or phone– any device on which the Bookshelf app can be loaded.  

What is the cost of a subscription?

How do I find out more?
