Find Books and eBooks

Searching for Books and eBooks

When looking for books or eBooks, start using Quick Search, then try I-Share, and finally try Interlibrary Loan. Quick Search will search many of our databases as well as our physical collection. When searching Quick Search and I-Share, note that you can limit your search to Books. (See image below - this will also include eBooks).

Note: QuickSearch and I-Share have the same interface (seen below). Once you enter search terms into the search bar, a drop-down menu will appear and you should select if you want to search "QuickSearch" or "All I-Share Libraries". The yellow buttons below will do this automatically.
