Navigating Electronic Books

Accessing Full Text of Ebooks: Click on the title to the left which takes you to the catalog record. Next, click on the link in the grey box which will send you to another page (i.e, ProQuest, JStor). It will link to another page. You may need to enter your Oxy log-in credentials.

Note: If you encounter a "timed out" page, please refresh the page.

Options for Reading: Each vendor that offers ebooks presents the content slightly differently, but each page will have the option to Read Online or Download Book.

Read Online: This option allows you to preview the content of the book within your browser. You can navigate the table of contents, or locate a "search within" option (often displayed a magnifying glass) to search for keywords within the text.

Download Book: Many vendors allow you to download the entirety of the book or a portion of the book to your device.
