Research 101: E-books

Using E-books

To read an e-book, click on "full text available" from the results view:

OR if you are looking at the detailed view, scroll down and click on "link to online resource".

Once you get to the book, take a look at the information before you. Each e-book publisher is a bit different, but there may be:

  • a table of contents (click on any part of the table of contents to start reading)
  • a link that says “open book” or “read online”
  • information about how many pages you can copy, download, or print (you usually will not be able to print the whole book).

There may also be a search box somewhere on the page that you can use to search within the book.
