Current students, faculty and staff of Texas Wesleyan can read most electronic books off-campus. There are two main sources where e-books are stored: eBooks on EBSCOhost and OVID. When searching the library catalog, e-books will have the location ONLINE and there will be a blue button that says Online Content. Clicking that button brings you to the book's item details screen. Click the button that says West Library Patrons.

For eBooks on EBSCOhost: You can also access and search for all eBooks on EBSCOhost by clicking on the "Online Resources" link on the Library's homepage and clicking on "E" at the top of the page.

For OVID books: OVID has a limit to the number of users who may read books and articles at the same time, so please click the log out button when you are done with your session. For any questions, please contact the Reference Desk at 817-531-4802.
