How do I search for an eBook?

Answer

eBooks can be found using multiple searches on a variety of platforms and databases.  Our library catalog does provide access to eBooks, but these will only be those eBooks that we permanently own.

You're best option for searching the largest collection of eBooks is by using the eBooks search, linked on the library homepage.

You can also use the main Discovery Search, available on the library homepage. After searching your terms, click on the "All Filters" tab below the search box.  Limit your results by selecting "eBooks" under the "Source Types".

The "All Filters" menu with the field "Source Types" selected and "eBooks" checked off

 

You'll see a link to each eBook on the results list and when you click on the title to enter the record.  

Once in the eBook, you will be able to see whether it can be downloaded onto a device or whether you can only view/print a selection of it.  It will depend on the vendor.
