Sometimes you just need to access a book and its contents immediately. Here is how you can search for e-books using the library’s “General Search”. Begin by going to the library’s homepage. Enter your search terms into the “General Search” search box.

Once on the results screen, use the facets located on the left hand side of the screen to refine your results by content type. This will refine the results to books, both print and electronic.

To narrow the results to ebooks only, scroll down to library location, clicking on the more link. Exclude all library locations to narrow to e-books only, then click Exclude and then click Apply. The results will be refined to books that are available electronically.
