Search for words and phrases related to your research topic. Depending on how broad or narrow your topic is, use different searches for better results. Choose the different searches from the pull-down list beside the search box.
The subject searches focus on subject headings. Keyword matches terms against titles, authors, subjects, table of contents, and other information. Keyword is looser than the subject searches but it will work for terms not found in the subject headings.
You can also use operators with the keyword search.
If a book has online in the call number and electronic resource noted in the title, it is an e-book. Each e-book has a URL link near the right side of the screen. That link will take you to the e-book.
E-books are duplications of printed books, so the content is consistent page-by-page with the print edition.
E-books (electronic books) are accessed differently from off-campus, due to security, copyright laws, and licensing.
To access e-books from off-campus:

Click on E for either E-brary or E-books on EBSCOhost and choose the collection you want to use.

Once you are logged in, search by the title of the book you want to use or search by subject or keyword.
