How to Access electronic books (eBooks)

Search for books and Ebooks can be done in two ways:

1. Begin with PRIMO's search. Change the search scope to "Books and E-books". Search for the e-book using title or keywords.

 

2. If you have not selected the search scope to "Books and Ebooks", refine the search result by selecting on the filter (to the left side of the screen)

Select the ITEM TYPE and select Books.

Once you have the eBook search results,

  • click on the eBook by using the Full Text Online link to begin to read.
  • login with your UC credentials when prompted.
