Maybe you've used our DMZ, Axis 360, and Freading resources to look for Fiction but have you ever used them for Non-Fiction? Here is a list of E-books available for download that cover World War I. You may notice that some of these books are also in the library's print collection so if the book you want is checked out, you can always look for it online. The books are separated by the program used to download them. If you've never used our digital downloads before you can find instructions here.
