You are here
There are two different options when searching for e-books:
- Search the library catalogue, and limit the item format to "Electronic". Please note that not all e-books are catalogued, and that by limiting the document type to electronic, you may also retrieve other items such as journals, government documents, etc.
- Search the library's e-book collections. Searching e-book collections is similar to searching in the catalogue. I recommend searching either by subject or keyword.
Tips for using e-books
- Some e-books can only be consulted by one searcher at a time.
- The number of pages that can be printed or downloaded from an e-book is set by the publisher.
- Some e-book collections will allow you to export your references to Zotero, a powerful, free citation manager.
You can search the library's catalogue by:
- Journal Title
Tips and tricks:
- By default, the results screen displays 10 documents per page
- Results can be sorted by: Title, Author, Date, Relevance
- The record summary is where you’ll find the information necessary to retrieve your document:
- Name of the library
- Copy location
- Call number
- For electronic resources, a direct link to the document is provided in the record summary.
- You can export your references to RefWorks
