NEW: Ebrary YouTube video

Did you know…

…Sullivan Library has a YouTube video on searching Ebrary? This service provides over 70,000 electronic full-text books available cover to cover from the comforts of your home. Ebrary books are linked to from within the library’s online book catalog, however it is also possible to go directly to the service by visiting the library databases page and logging in (from on or off campus).

If you go directly to Ebrary via the databases page, you will get more results when you run a search for books. Ebrary can look inside the book to find keywords, but the book catalog cannot. It can only search the information about the book.
