Looking for Books or eBooks?

The Evans Library has a wide collection of print books and eBooks available.

One of the easiest ways to find books and eBooks is to search using the OneSearch database. Enter your keywords (or a title) and limit your search results to "Books" and/or "eBooks."


The other way to locate books and eBooks is to search for them separately. The Library keeps a record of all print books in the Library Catalog, where you can search the catalog by keyword, by title, or by author. To find and browse only eBooks, you can search one of the Library's eBook collections directly. 

The boxes below contain links and descriptions for the Library's various eBook collections and the Library Catalog.

Evans Library Catalog

Search the Library Catalog for print books and government documents. Subjects are named in the Library Catalog using the Library of Congress Subject Headings. Locate print books on the fourth floor of the Evans Library using the call number indicated in the Library Catalog record.

Catalog Search Tips

To Search the Catalog:

  1. Click the Catalog tab on the library's website and enter the word or words you want to find.
  2. Choose a field from the drop-down menu. All FIelds looks in all indexed fields within a record.  All other choices (Title, Journal Title, Author, Subject, Call Number, ISBN/ISSN, Series) target specified fields within a record.
  3. Click Find.

Additional search tips:

  • Most words in the catalog’s records are indexed and therefore searchable.
  • Boolean operators AND, +, OR, NOT, and may be used to narrow or expand searches.
  • Use truncation/wildcard symbols to replace any number of characters (*) or a single character (?).
  • The most precise search is a Subject search using a term from the Library of Congress Subject Headings.
  • Click on links (subjects, authors, and more) in the catalog record to continue searching.
  • Search results may be cited, e-mailed, texted or exported into RefWorks.
  • Click Advanced Search to limit results by call number (LCSH or SuDocs), publication year, language, and format.
