How to search for e-books in the library catalog.
From the library search bar ABOVE, change the Material Type drop-down menu to Electronic Book (ebook).
USE SUBJECT RATHER THAN KEYWORD TO SEARCH for a narrower list. If that doesn't bring up what you need, go ahead and try a keyword search. All e-books open up with the same user name and password used for our EBSCO resources (pick up a password bookmark in the library).
