Finding Books and EBooks

To find books and e-books in the library catalog, first go to the library's Catalog and Discovery Search, found at Click on "Advanced Search."


From the Advanced Search: Change the Search Scope in the top left corner of the screen to "Library Catalog," change the Material Type on the right side of the screen to "Books." In the center enter a keyword related to the types of books you are searching for. 

NOTE: You can also use the "Any Field" dropdown menu to limit your keyword search to the author, title, subject, or ISBN (International Standard Book Number).

Below the search bar will be the results of your search, both books and e-books. You can click on any title to see where it is available in the library and learn more about the item via the item record.

If you want to limit your search result to just books, click on "Available from the Library" on the right side of the screen under the heading: Availability. This will limit the search result to only books within Bailey Library.

If you wish to limit your search to only e-books available online, select "Full Text Online under the heading "Availability" on the right side of the screen.

Accessing E-Books

E-Books can be viewed from anywhere, not just in the library!

Simply click on the link under View It in the catalog record, and then log in with your SRU credentials to read the book online
