Info on where to find and how to search for eBooks.

Searching for eBooks


Results in Summon, the discovery tool on the Library homepage, automatically include eBooks.

To see only eBooks, you will need to select two filters from the left-side panel, including "Full Text Online," and "Book/eBook" under Content Type. These filters are highlighted below.



The Catalog

The catalog automatically searches for eBooks when performing a search.

To do an eBook-only search in the catalog:

  1. On the Library homepage click "Library Catalog" (located under "Research Tools")
  2. Click "Advanced Search"
  3. Under "Material Type" select "EBOOKS"
  4. Use the "Enter Search Terms" boxes to search for your topic

The image below demonstrates how to search the Library Catalog for online commentaries. To search for ebooks on other topics, simply adjust the search terms to relevant searches, while being sure to select "ebooks" from under Material Type.
