Here are a few tips for navigating the collection: 

  • In the search box, just type in a few keywords about your topic rather than whole sentences.
  • Too many results? Add additional keywords to your search of narrow down by subject on the left hand side of the results screen.
  • View a PDF of the book online or download for 48 hours.
  • Many of the books only allow one user at a time so if you get a message saying the book is in use, try again later.
