You can search for all UO Libraries' eBooks through LibrarySearch (search box below) or search individual databases for specific collections.
Learn about finding eBooks through ProQuest Ebook Central and eBook Collection (EBSCOhost) at the Downloading eBooks page.
LibrarySearch offers a streamlined interface for finding books and other media that combines the collections of UO Libraries and Summit libraries.
Use LibrarySearch to find millions of items available at UO, including eBooks! Narrow your search by using filters. These are also sometimes called refiners, narrowers, or limiters.
To locate eBooks, check the corresponding box (under the Resource Type filter). You may also want to include Book Chapters.
LibrarySearch also includes catalogs of other Summit (OR, WA, and ID) academic libraries. Using the UO eResources filter (under Availability) will eliminate results that includes eBook records the UO doesn’t have current access to.
Be sure to click Apply to limit your results to your selected filters.
