There are at least two ways to quickly link back to ebooks.

One way is to use your Coe Library account as a storehouse for the titles and authors. When you are viewing an ebook entry in the library catalog, look at the top of the page. There are some blue icons located there. Click on "Save to My Lists." You will then be prompted to sign onto your library account. Once signed in you will be prompted to create a new "list." Name the list and add a description, then click "Submit." That record will be save to that list.

The webpage will then go to the default accounts page. To view the items in your list, click on the "My Lists" icon, which is located on the right side of the webpage. Your "lists" will appear and  you can click on the link in the list to go to the catalog entry. From the catalog entry you can access the ebook.

A second way to keep track of ebooks is to create user accounts with the different ebook vendors. For example, eBrary allows you to add items to "My Bookshelf." Once a book is added to the bookshelf, you can easily access the book for reading by clicking on the title. You can also organize the titles into categories and subjects. Other vendors allow you to do similar functions. Explore each vendor's interface to see how to best use the resources.
