Note: At this time, eBooks from ProQuest eBook Central 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 ProQuest's eBook Central search platform. You may be asked to sign in or create an account to use the search platform.
eBook Central has a simple search box where you can enter your terms, but to have full control of your search logic, use the Advanced Search.
The Advanced Search allows you to search by author, title, subject, year as well as things like ISBN, LC subject headings, and language among others.
Once you get your results you can refine your search by using the limiters on the left or click on the title of a book that interests you and you will see more information about the book. From this point you can Read Online or do things like download the entire book.
eBook Central 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 ProQuest eBook Central in the tabs at the top of this guide.
