Searching for e-books on a topic

From the Library homepage ensure you have gained access to the subscription material we own by logging on with your NetID via the off-campus access link.

Beginning at the Library homepage select the Advanced Search option of Summon:

The Advances Search screen allows you to limit your results to Ebooks only. After entering my search terms I select Book/eBook under content type, limit to English language and select items with full text online:

Just below this search box, to the left, I also choose an active filter of Available online. Now I have a set of results which contain my keywords 'Calming strategies' and 'Early Childhood' published between 2000 - 2020, available online.

To the right of the titles you will find management options such as the ability to generate a citation, option to email the record, pin the result to a clipboard and under the ellipses citation management and print options.
