As ESO is now introducing Office 365/2013, the library recently purchased some e-books that might be of interest to Office users:
Teach Yourself Visually Office 2013
Office 2013 All-In-One For Dummies
Microsoft Office 2013 Bible

These books can be read online at any time. In addition, you can save the content to your device (desktop and/or mobile reader) using the software Adobe Digital Editions which needs to be installed on your machine.

In case you are interested in other titles in electronic or print format, let us know as we can purchase specific books on request.
