Ebooks for CIS

UO no longer has a subscription to the Safari Tech Books platform. ACM members (student or professional) can access Safari through the ACM site. Some may be available as ebooks on other platforms, so check LibrarySearch or place requests for sections via Interlibrary Loan.

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

Books can offer a chance to learn about a subject in-depth. Edited books can provide a chapter or chapters related to your topic. In addition to print books, the UO Libraries offers many ebooks that can be accessed remotely by current UO students and faculty. 

Library Catalog (LibrarySearch):

To search: 

If you want only books/videos/music in the UO Libraries system, change the search scope to "UO Libraries." 


If you want books/videos/music in the UO Libraries system and the consortium of 37 colleges and universities in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, select "UO + Summit." You can place a request for books within Summit using LibrarySearch. Requests generally arrive within 3-5 days.  


If you want to broaden your search even further, use WorldCat to search beyond the UO Library and the consortium.  These materials are requested through Interlibrary Loan and may come from any library. Books and AV items arrive within an average of 10 days. You can also request individual book chapters be scanned and sent to you. There is a link to WorldCat on the Libraries' homepage  

You can also limit your search results by resource type using the search filters, usually on the left-side of the screen (or click on the filter icon if you are on a mobile device). Click on "Print books" and "ebooks" to limit your results to both types of books.
