The official WSU Common Reading 2022 Information page: Common Reading 2022-23 = Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants
The WSU Libraries is providing access to Braiding Sweetgrass as an unlimited use ebook (link goes to library record) through the ProQuest interface. This tutorial will walk you through the process of accessing and reading it. Information is provided in text with screenshots as appropriate; there are also short screencasts that demonstrate specific processes.
Why are there two links in the library record?
We have access to this book through a subscription database, Ebook Central Academic Complete, and also as a purchased title through Ebook Central Perpetual (both of these are from ProQuest). They are the same ebook, and whichever link you select will take you to the same place. We have unlimited access, so there is no limit on how many people can be accessing it (that means reading it online and/or downloading it) at the same time (in this case, ignore the default language on the "Perpetual" link that reads "There may be a limit on the number of concurrent users for this title."). You will also have access for 365 days after you have downloaded it. If you need it after that you can just redownload it - any highlights or notes you have maide will still be there because they are linked to your WSU NetID in Ebook Central.
How can I read this book? These are your options, and you will see advantages and disadvantages listed below.
Reading It Online in Ebook Central on Your Desktop/Laptop/Tablet/Smartphone Browser (Easiest)
Downloading it to a Desk/Laptop Using Ereading App Adobe Digital Editions (Macs, Windows)
Downloading it to an iPad or iPhone using Bluefire Reader (because Adobe Digital Editions for iPad/iPhone is *terrible*)
