To search the Library's catalog, go to the Library's libguide home page (link below)
In the box that says "go straight to the good stuff" there are two options
Click on 'Books (Print)' this will access our online catalog of books and eBooks. I recommend searching 'jackson lottery' (without the quotes) To the left of the results, you can limit by eBooks
Click on 'EBSCO eBooks' and do the same search.
Most of our eBooks are provided by EBSCO, however, there are a few other sources, so if one does not work, try the other.
Now, when I just did that, one title was Shirley Jackson's American Gothic. When I clicked on it, I got the message that it was in use by another patron. Just like print books in a library, there is a limit to the number of people who can use the book at one time.
It is sometimes possible to find short stories on the Web. Look for sites with a url ending in .edu. They are often reliable.
