Finding Online Textbooks and Other eBooks

Search Tips

ebook To Search for Your Book

  • Use the CTRL + F function on your keyboard (Cmd + F for Macs).
  • Do NOT use the search box in the upper right corner.  (It will just direct you back to the same page.)

Trouble logging in?

  • Try clearing your browsers cache or opening a window in incognito mode (Ctrl + Shift + N for Windows)  (⌘ + Shift + N for Mac).
  • In Bloomsbury, do not click on links that say "Buy this Book" or "Sign Up".  (Those will log you out.)
  • Some titles in the EBSCOhost database can only be used by one person at a time.  (One way to know for sure is if there is a note on the Online Textbook Guide under your book saying "One user at a time".)  You may have to log back out and try later.
  • If you are still having issues you can visit our Database Troubleshooting Guide for more solutions or let us know about the issue at Ask the Library.

*We are currently experiencing tech issues with some of our ebooks. As a workaround please open the links below in an incognito web browser.  (How do I open an incognito browser?)
