You can locate Library eBooks by using the FiNDit search interface on the Library homepage. Search by title, author, or subject. Once you have selected your book from FiNDit, click on the ‘eBook: Full Text Online’ link.

This will open the eBook in a new window. The Library offers eBooks through a number of platforms, but the two most common are ProQuest eBook Central and Ebsco eBook Collection.


ProQuest eBook Central

An eBook from eBook Central is easily identifiable by the purple ProQuest Ebook Central header at the top of the screen.

To generate a direct link to the eBook, click on Share Link to Book on the left sidebar.

This will open a dialogue box with a persistent link to the eBook.

Copy and paste this link wherever required.



To provide a link to a specific chapter or page of an eBook, first navigate to the relevant page/chapter.

From the top toolbar, click on the icon of two linked chain loops.

This will open a dialogue box with a persistent link which directs readers to your chosen location.

Copy and paste this link wherever required. 


Ebsco eBook Collection

You can identify an Ebsco eBook by the EbscoHost logo at the top of the page. Note that Ebsco eBooks have a similar look to the Ebsco databases for journal articles, such as Academic Search Premier or CINAHL.


Click on the Permalink tool from the right hand toolbar of the screen.

Copy the permalink provided and paste wherever it is required.
