Commonwealth eBook Collections

CEC logo

The Massachusetts Library System has created a new catalog of eBooks and historical documents, and the Holbrook Public Library is pleased to offer this new catalog! There are three vendors providing content for this collection, and they are Baker & Taylor – one of the largest distributors of books and media in the country; Biblioboard – a new company that curates digital content of all kinds from all around the world; and EBL – a company that focuses on academic and research titles.

There are apps for each of these providers, and the content from Baker & Taylor’s Axis 360 and EBL can be accessed on your computer, tablet, or smartphone, while the content from Biblioboard can be accessed on your computer or tablet, but not a smartphone.

All of this content can be accessed by following these image links:
