Searching for e-books is as simple as searching for traditional books.
Open the UCLA Library Catalog.
On the UCLA Library Catalog main search page, select the Advanced Search tab.
Enter your search in the search box, in this example chemistry. Under Location, select Online. Under Type, select Book.
On the Search Results page, click on the title of the e-book. Any item with electronic access will say [electronic resource] in the title or have Online Resources as the item location.
To open the e-book, click the link next to the ONLINE ACCESS.
You will be able to read all UCLA licensed e-books online. Depending on UCLA Library's agreement with the publisher, you may also be able to download, save, highlight, and even print the e-book for your personal use.
Warning: When new print records are added to the collection, it is possible that they may appear in the search results though the only available online content is the table of contents or book cover. These records are removed quickly from the e-book list, but if you do encounter one of these records, it is likely that we only have the title in print.
