Trouble accesing an ebook? Ask a Librarian

Several Proquest ebooks companies are transferring to a new interface, ProQuest Ebook Central.  If you have any trouble accessing an ebook from the catalog, please Ask a Librarian.  We would be love to help you troubleshoot the issue and gain access as soon as possible.  You can also download Passkey, a bookmarklet, that helps you connect to databases and journals without going through the library web site.
