Find books in our eBook Databases

You can also search ebook databases directly.

  • Go to the Databases page.
  • Type "ebook" in the search box just above the database list.
  • Choose an ebook database to search.
  • Academic library ebook databases usually allow 1 user at a time to use a book. If you receive a message, you may need to come back later when another user is not using the same book. Faculty who want to use an ebook as a textbook should contact the library for multiuser access to the resource.
