Business e-Books in OverDrive

Business & Economics Department, Central Library,
OverDrive titles

Business e-Books have MOVED from Axis360 to OverDrive!  Axis360 was phased out in November 2015 but many of the e-Book titles selected by the Business & Economics Department are migrating to OverDrive.  The Department is also buying new material to enlarge our e-Book holdings in finance, trading, accounting, CFA, insurance and real estate exam prep, technical analysis, project management, taxes, real estate and small business start-up. 


To find business e-Books, go to the Library’s web site, and select OverDrive in the e-Media vendor listing.  On the OverDrive home page, select All Nonfiction in the blue e-Book menu section and use the left sidebar filter to choose SUBJECT – Business.  You can also search the regular catalog by subject and select the e-book titles.  If there’s an e-Book you would like us to consider adding to the collection, please contact us at


OverDrive offers downloadable e-Books, e-Audiobooks, and e-Videos.  Additional software is required for all files.  Most e-Media can be transferred to PC, iOS, Android and Kindle devices.  Access is provided by your library card and an OverDrive account, which you can create after you log in with your card.  OverDrive is easy to use and has comprehensive help pages.  The vendor even offers Front Line Tech Support if you need assistance setting up your account or device.  The Department encourages all of you to explore OverDrive and give us your feedback.


Here’s a recent selection of business e-Book titles you can find in OverDrive:
