Finding ebooks

Type your keywords in the search box.  You do not have to use the "and" but it's a good habit to get into for library databases in general.

Use the Resource Type option on the left hand side of the screen to limit your search to ebooks. You may have to click on Show More to get to the ebook option.

Click on the title of an ebook you want to look at.
Before connecting to the book, you MUST with your UW NetID.

Here's a sample title

Creating Jazz Counterpoint: New Orleans, Barbershop Harmony, and the Blues

Hobson, Vic
2014 University Press of Mississippi

Once you've logged in, select the online link.  Sometimes there is more than one link but they often go to the same resource.



With this book, Creating Jazz Counterpoint, I can read it online or download it to my computer.  Note that it says that we have unlimited access to it.  That is very good!
