ACCESS & AU International Students: E-Books

Searching for E-Books

You can use OneSearch on the Library home page, the AU Library Catalog, or individual ebook databases to find eBooks.

To find available electronic books using OneSearch, start with the OneSearch box on the Library home page.  Express your main topic in a word or simple phrase.  Using quotation marks around a phrase gives more precise results.


On the page of results, use the left sidebar to limit the Source Type to eBooks. If you don't see eBooks listed as one of the most frequent source types, click on "Show More." Check off eBooks and then click update.

The list of results may include AU Library eBooks, OhioLINK eBooks, or a few other electronic publications such as government documents.  Some records provide the eBook in more than one format.  Others have a link to Connect to resource on one of several OhioLINK eBook platforms.  You will need to log in if you have not already done so.
