E-Book Collections

Textbooks are a good resource to consult when looking up general, descriptive information.

Search the Library Catalog

Using E-Books Effectively

If a keyword search of the entire collection doesn't work, try:

  • filtering the results  to the specialty or broader topic your question is about
    • e.g., questions about managing asthma may be found under pulmonology, pulmonary, or respiratory
  • browsing the table of contents or index of individual books
    • internal medicine texts may provide a broader overview of a topic
    • specialty-specific texts are useful for more in-depth information
