Perusing Pigskin Past: Ebooks and the History of Football

Like many Americans, one of my favorite things about fall is football, and like many Chicago sports fans, I’m very excited about the Bears 7-1 start. As exciting as modern day football is, though, sometimes I really enjoy reading about the very different early days of football.

From the comfort of your home you can use the Prairie State College Library’s ebook collection to read titles like the ones above on the beginnings of professional and college football. Just click on one of the covers above and log in with your PSC username and birth date to start reading. And if you’re not sure how to use our ebooks, you can check out these earlier entries about finding ebooks and using the many features of eBrary to save and download an ebook.
