Currently, the Library owns nearly 20,000 e-books on a variety of academic, vocational, as well as general interest topics. These e-books are contained in two separate collections, the EBSCO eBook Collection  (formerly NetLibrary e-Books) and the Gale Virtual Reference Library .

Off-campus access to Merritt College Library e-books is available through remote authentication with last name and student ID number.
