Japanese e-Books Free Trial in May, 2009

May 5, 2009 at 1:39 pm Leave a comment

Japanese e-books free trial from NetLibrary is now available for Pitt students, faculty and staff until the end of May. This is offered by OCLC and Kinokuniya Bookstore.

I would like to start purchasing Japanese e-books from July based on this trial and your feedbacks. Please try it and let me know. The followings are some tips to access Japanese e-books. Please use Microsoft Internet Explorer, not Firefox, since some functions of NetLibrary do not work well with Firefox.

You cannot search Japanese e-books in PittCat classic nor PittCat+ yet, because we don’t purchase them yet. You have to go to NetLibrary first in following steps.

1. Go to Library Home page “ULS Digital Library” / (if you are accessing from you home, don’t forget to access from off campus access . )
3. Click Database by Title
4. Click “N”
5. Click “net Library”
6. Click “CONNECT to the database”
7. You will access home page of NetLibrary and you will see a message “Welcome to the University of Pittsburgh eContent Collection”
8. Start search by Japanese by change search language from pull down menu.
