Linking to e-Books

In the library catalog you can limit your search to e-books by choosing E-books from the drop-down menu to the right of the search box, as shown in the image below.



Link to the record offered in the catalog. This will bring your students straight to the record for the book where they will be prompted to sign in if needed. To do this, right-click on “permanent link to this record” (shown below) and choose “copy link address.”
