Accessing eBooks Tutorial (UO video tutorial)

UO LibrarySearch - Find articles, books, and more

LibrarySearch offers a streamlined interface for finding books and other media that combines the collections of UO Libraries and Summit libraries.

Finding Books & Dissertations

The Finding Dissertations guide can help you with searching the online catalog for dissertations, finding electronic dissertations, and more.

Finding Remote Resources at UO Libraries

Use LibrarySearch to search millions of item records available at UO, then narrow your search to remote materials using filters. You can find some journal articles directly through LibrarySearch, but you will likely have better luck searching in databases specific to your subject area, using our BrowZine search interface, or exploring resources temporarily available during the pandemic.

Finding eBooks using LibrarySearch

To locate eBooks, check the corresponding box (under the Resource Type filter). You may also want to include Book Chapters. In order to omit resources only available at other Summit libraries, filter to include just UO eResources (under Availability).

Be sure to click Apply to limit your results to your selected filters.

Again, many resources are being made temporarily available during the pandemic that may not appear in our catalog. If you can't find what you're looking for, Ask Us through chat or email us.
