About eBooks:

eBooks, or electronic books, are digital versions of books, delivered online. The content of these books may have been born digitally or they may have been created in a print form and then digitized later. eBooks can give the user the ability to search and locate words or phrases within a text.

Due to the varied nature of their compilation, users may find that the access methods and accuracy of a resource can vary.
