Locating online items in the UW Libraries collection, such as ebooks, involves three steps: searching for material using relevant words and phrases, filtering results to what is available online, and refining the search results to display only the specific types of online material in the results.
1. At the Libraries home page, type in your search terms in the UW Libraries Search box. Click Search.
2. Filter results to online material by going to the Refine My Results column on the left and in the Availability box, check the "Available Online" option. Click on "Apply Filters" at the bottom of the screen.
3. To specify online material types, such as ebooks, in the results, go to the Refine My Results side bar and expand the "Resource Type" section. Select the desired online material type, such as eBooks, then click on Apply Filters at the bottom of the screen.
4. You can then click on the link available in the View It or View Online section to access the online material.
