Finding Palace App E-Books in Bobcat

From NYU Library's catalog, users can see if a specific book is available to read in the Palace app. Click on a title in the catalog to open the details screen. The "View Online" section lists the places where e-versions of the title are available.

If the record is available in Palace, the link "Palace App (read this ebook on your phone or tablet)" will display.
