Finding & Using Ebooks: Home

Finding Ebooks
  1. Use the Library Catalog
    The Library catalog searches many of the Library's ebook collections. When doing basic catalog searches, your results will include many ebooks. If you are searching from off campus, you'll need to login with your COD credentials to access full ebook content.
  2. Use individual ebook gateways Not all of our ebook collections are searchable using the Library catalog. This is especially true for some our smaller and more specialized collections. To access ebooks in those collections, you'll need to search those collections directly.
