EDUC 1300: Career Research: Online books

This page has information about using the library's online ebook databases to find book chapters and whole books about your career.

Online books intro

The library may be closed, but you can still find library books and book chapters in our eBook databases online. 

eBooks have a few advantages over print books, actually:

  1. You never have to worry about due dates or overdue fines. eBooks return themselves!
  2. Looking for something specific in a book? You can use the 'search within' or Ctrl+F keyboard shortcut to jump to a specific word or phrase anywhere in an eBook. 
  3. You don't necessarily need to read a book cover to cover to use it as a research source: maybe you just need one chapter or section. eBooks make it easy to view and jump around a book's table of contents to select just one section.
