Their location is determined by a number of factors including call number range, location, and usage statistics. ebooks are accesible from computers in any location, and from off-campus.

The collection at the UDC includes books is the H and J call number ranges that support the programs in the College of Community and Public Affairs, as well as the local and regional government document collection.
