Tips on Finding and Using Ebooks

* If you know the author or title, search our catalog first. 

* If you know the topic, search full text at Google Books, and then find interesting books in our catalog.

* Sign up with public libraries in Oakland, San Jose, and San Francisco and search across all of them to find more ebooks. 

* We try to get you DRM-free books when possible, but some publishers will only license restricted-access books.  

* Use our off-campus access guide if you're having trouble logging in or getting access to ebooks.

* Please email your librarian (Celia Emmelhainz) if you need help or want us to search for / buy an ebook we don't already have!
