E-Books: Finding and Using Electronic Books

How to search

There are a number of different places to find and access e-books. You can search for e-books through any of the links below. Enter the search words in the search box to find the desired e-book.

Search for E-Books in the Library Catalog

IUCAT does not contain e-books themselves or other content.  It contains links to e-books and other resources in addition to call numbers for print books. If you don't know what e-book collection (EBSCOhost, ProQuest. etc.) you're looking for, IUCAT is a great place to start your search!

Occasionally there will be an e-book or streaming video with a normal looking record in IUCAT, but when the link is followed, a "0 results" screen appears like the one below. This happens when the library loses access to a title we previously had, but the record in IUCAT has not been updated yet. 

E-Book Collections - General

The two resources above all contain full-text e-books.  If you open the e-book in the resource, you can read the e-book online and/or download it.

More specialized e-book collections

The e-book collections listed above are more specialized.  Not all of them can be downloaded, but instead need to be read online.
