You can find the library's collection of electronic books in several ways:

  1. Search for specific titles in Augmented Search from the library homepage. You can narrow you search to only eBooks from the Source Type filter on the left sidebar. There is a chance that the library owns a print copy as well as the eBook, so you should look for the term "eBook" below the image of the book in the results page (see attached image). If you want to be immediately directed to the eBook from the results page, you can click on the links titled either "PDF Full-Text"/"EPUB Full Text" or "Online Access".
  2. If you know that the eBook is on reserve for a class, you can check the reserve collections in the Reserve Bookroom. You can check for either the course number or the faculty to see what is on reserve for a specific class.
  3. If do not have a specific book in mind, but you wanted to browse or search for eBooks by subject, you might want to search our list of individual eBook databases. The majority of our eBooks can be found on "Axis360" and "eBooks on EBSCOhost", but you'll also find many other scholarly eBooks from other sources on this list.
