Ebooks can usually be found alongside printed books in iDiscover. There are a couple of ways you can search for an ebook:

Go to iDiscover

Enter some search terms (e.g. the author’s surname, some keywords from the title, or the ISBN), and you will get a list of results matching your search.This list will contain all items related to your search, and you can then refine these results. On the right hand side of the screen, select 'Books' under the heading ‘Resource Type’ and ‘Full Text Available’ under the heading ‘Availability’(it will also show you how many titles there are in that format).

If the ebook isn’t included in the results list, you can also check the ebooks LibGuide  as not all of our ebook collections are available to search in iDiscover. The resources that are not available to search via iDiscover are: apabi Digital LibraryEarly English Books OnlineEighteenth Century Collections Online
