Thank you for your inquiry.
Were you trying to access the e-book from off-campus? This is usually the problem when a user says they can’t access an ebook.
Although the catalog itself is public and does not require a password, the ebooks are subscriptions and only available to Hofstra users with a username and password.
To access an ebook, you must log into the portal, then select Library from the left-hand sidebar. You will land at the Library homepage. The default setting for the search box is the catalog and you can then search for your item.
Once you are at your item, you click on "Online version; Access limited to Hofstra University users" to access the book.
