Campus Library FAQ: How do I find e-books?

Frequently asked questions at the UWB/CC Campus Library

Finding e-books

Locating e-books in the UW Libraries collection involves two steps: searching for material using relevant words and phrases, and refining the search results to display only e-book titles.

Please note that you must be logged in with your UW NetID to access e-books. If you are not logged in when beginning your search, you will be prompted to log in before viewing the book. 

1. Type your title or keywords into UW Libraries Search.

UW Libraries Search Box

2. Refine results to e-books by clicking the e-books link under Resource Type.

Note: You may need to click "More options" to see the e-Books link.

3. Click on the title of the book you want. On the resulting screen, scroll down to "View Online" and click on one of the databases listed to access the e-book.

Some ebooks have limited user access. If a book is "single user access" and another user has it checked out, you may need to wait until they're done before you can view it.
