Introduction to e-books

Electronic books (e-books) are full-text books available online. They can be accessed 24/7, although those that are Rutgers-resticted will require you to log in with your NetID and password. Another convenience of e-books is that they typically allow keyword searching of the full-text. While some e-books are the equivalent of a print book, others may be "born digital" (i.e., started off in electronic format) - thus, some content may only be available in e-book form.

Finding e-books in the Rutgers Library Catalog

To find electronic books (e-books) available through the Rutgers University Libraries, perform an Advanced Search in QuickSearch:

  1. Enter the word/phrase, title, author, and/or subject heading you wish to search.
  2. Select Books from the Resource Type pull-down menu.
  3. Click the Search button.
  4. In the 'Filter my results' panel (along the left side of the screen), check off the Available online box, then click the Apply Filters button.
  5. Click on the title for any item that interests you and you will see more details about that item.
  6. To view the e-book, click on the link under the 'Find Online' -- Full text availability section of the record.
