Digital Media

Patrons of the Great Barrington Libraries have access to thousands of electronic resources. Fiction and non-fiction eBooks, including current bestsellers, can be found at both the C/W Mars Digital Catalog and Axis 360.

Historical documents and images, as well as indie books, Dark Horse comics, and numerous “Books for Dummies” titles are available at BiblioBoard, while academic and professional e-book titles are available from EBL (Ebook Library).

A smaller selection of audiobooks is also available from C/W Mars and Axis360 for some devices with sound capability.

Please note that: (1) not all digital resources are compatible with all devices, (2) the availability of magazines for Nook devices through C/W Mars will expire in the very near future, and (3) you will need your library card number to check out these materials.
