Ebooks at Riley Library -- Introduction

To search Ebrary on the ProQuest platform use this link.

There are a number of ways to access the library's ebooks. Choose the one that works for you.

Just remember that our ebooks reside on a number of different "platforms" which just means they come from different publishers, so the interface and its tools may vary depending on which publisher collection the content is coming from. 

The majority of our ebooks are in Ebrary, but we also have a number of reference books in a collection called Credo and some in the EBSCO database as well.

1) From the big search box on the library's webpage. Since this box searches several databases and the WorldCat worldwide catalog of 3,000 libraries, you'll need to limit to "ebooks" as the format after you get your results. Look for the View Online button to open the ebook.

2) From Databases A-Z.  From the Research drop-down menu on the library's website, select Databases A-Z. Select "ebrary" to search just the ebrary collection of books directly. Other ebook collections are also listed there if you'd like to search them directly - Credo (reference books) and EBSCO ebooks.

4) From the All ProQuest database link.  If you like using the ProQuest interface for your work and you're also looking for articles, this might be a nice option.  Since the ebrary company is owned by ProQuest (I know - it's complicated!), you'll always see a link to ebooks in your results when searching in ProQuest.  To search Ebrary on the ProQuest platform use this link.
