The Library is pleased to launch the Dixon eBooks Collection to the Princeton University Community. An extension of the print Dixon Reading Collection, this collection currently has over 500 titles available for downloading or streaming on your own device or reading online, and features bestsellers, award winners, science and technology titles, popular fiction, history, biographies, and much more.

The collection is accessible through the OverDrive platform, which provides in-browser access and is compatible with most mobile devices and eReaders. (list of compatible devices) Patrons may either download the required software for access on mobile devices or view through a Google Chrome or IE browser.  Five titles may be charged  to a patron at any one time for a two-week period.  Patrons may also place holds on titles, set up wish lists, and receive reading recommendations.  This service is free and open to members of Princeton University community.

The collection titles can be found through the Dixon eBooks webpage, SearchIt, or the Main Catalog
