The David Lam Library recently subscribed to three years of access to three modules from McGraw-Hill’s ebook library

  • Entrepreneurship & Small Business Management (30 titles)
  • Finance & Investing (134 titles)
  • Leadership & Management (99 titles)

Many of the books are useful as introductory texts. Users can read full-text content online, as content cannot be downloaded.  Printing is available, one page at a time, for the first 10% of the book.

Once you connect to the database you can browse or search for books, as well as register to access personalized features like note-taking and bookmarks.

A recent trial of underground and independent comics offered by UBC Library is featured in an article about Vancouver comics in Scout Magazine.
