I am off campus. How can I get into electronic books I found searching the Library Catalog?

The library subscribes to many electronic book collections (Netlibrary, Knovel, Books 24x7, ebrary) which can be searched within our library catalog.

Can I use other area libraries?

WPI students, faculty, and staff may borrow directly from over a dozen local libraries by obtaining an Academic & Research Collaborative (ARC) card. Bring your valid WPI ID to the Gordon Library Circulation Desk and within minutes you will hold the key to borrowing from a variety of libraries at Clark University, College of the Holy Cross, Assumption College, and many others. Your ARC card is valid through the end of the academic year.
