Montgomery County Memorial Library System Catalog

The e-books found in the regular catalog contain links where the book can either be read online or downloaded to a computer. These materials are transferrable to some portable devices.

  1. To access the digital materials you can check out, search by title, subject or author. Under the "Refine your search" options at the bottom of the search page, select a MCMLS location. This will help limit the items to those owned by MCMLS. If you reach the Harris County Public Library website, you will not be able to download the book. (MCMLS and HCPL share regular books, but e-books are not able to be shared at this time.)

  2. When the Search Results return, select the item that shows "electronic resource". This will take you to a description of the item.

  3. To download the item, click on the hyperlink next to URL.

  4. This will take you to either the Houston Area Digital Catalog screen, or EBSCO.
