What's a collection?
The Library purchases most electronic books in collections of titles rather than by individual title. Collections can be from a single publisher, cover a wide range of subject areas, or specialize in one subject.
The collections listed on the left allow full-text searching of eBooks within the specific collections.
You can also use OskiCat to find eBooks at UC Berkeley (no full-text searching) by changing the drop-down menu default from Entire Collection to Available Online.
