Celebrate Black History Month: Books/eBooks

This supplementary research guide was created to highlight resources available through the WOU library, as well as external sites of interest.

Axis 360: Diverse Books for Black History Month and Beyond

Baker & Taylor Boundless is a service offered as part of our Recreational Reading collection. Through Axis 360, eBooks and audiobooks are available for checkout for three weeks and you can checkout a total of three digital books at once.

If you'd like to access these books on your phone or tablet, in addition to going to the website above, you can download the B&T Boundless app. Just search for "Boundless" in your app store. The first time you use the app, you'll need to sign in through the WOU proxy with your WOU ID and password, but after that first time the app should remember you. 

For more information, read our guide on how to use the service
