Full-text searching Ebrary's eBook collection
Note: At this time, eBooks from EBL, Ebrary, and EBSCO can't be "checked out" from AULibraries public or OIT Lab computers since the download must stay with the copy of Adobe Digital Editions it is downloaded to and is only transferrable to the devices synced to that copy. The online preview is available at all workstations.
Full-text searching in the content of eBooks must be done from the vendor webpage. Click here to access Ebrary's eBook search platform. You may be asked to sign in or create an account to use the search platform.
Ebrary has a simple search box where you can enter your terms, but to have full control of your search logic, use the Advanced Search.
You can add fields with the + button so you can express the relationships between your terms and where you want them to be searched.
Click on the title of the result that interests you - it will appear in a reader pane.
Ebrary allows you to further keyword search within your document to find where your words appear. Notice the "download" link if you wish to download the item for checkout.
For downloading instructions, see Downloading eBooks from Ebrary in the tabs at the top of this guide.
