Finding Books

This guide aims to provide information about finding books at UBC Library, primarily using the Library catalogue.

Finding eBooks

To search for e-books related to your research topic, start by entering keywords in the “Books & Media” tab and click "Search."


There are search filters located on the left side of the results page. Use the “Location: Online” filter to limit your results to electronic items.


If you are off-campus when connecting to an e-book, you will be prompted to enter your campus-wide login CWL to access the book. To learn more about connecting to library resources, you can visit the OpenAthens Connect guide.
