Identifying eBooks in the Library Catalog
eBooks are mixed in with other types of materials in the CSU Libraries catalog (also known as Primo). They are identified with a heading that says "Book" and a note that says "Online access" as in the example below.
Limiting a Catalog Search to eBooks
You can narrow down a search in the catalog to look for only eBooks.
1. Type keywords into the search box and run the search
2. Choose "Online at My Library" and "Books/eBooks" from the menu on the left of the results page (circled in the screenshot below)
3. If you want to continue to search for only eBooks, choose "Remember all filters" from the "Active filters" section of the menu
NOTE: A search in the catalog only looks for keywords in the catalog record (author, title, etc), not in the text of the book.
Searching within eBook Collections
To find chapters or specific sections of eBooks that relate to your topic, you can search within an eBook collection.
The search screen for each of the following collections looks slightly different, but all will allow you to find keywords within the text.
