UST Libraries OneSearch

The simplest way to find ebooks is to search UST Libraries OneSearch on the library homepage.

  1. Enter keywords in the search box, click Search (twice if need be)
  2. In the facets on the left side of the results, select "Books" under Resource Type.
  3. Then select "Full Text Online" under "Show Only."

To view the ebook, select "View Online" under the title you want to see. Then, if needed, select "Open in a new window."

Library Catalog

You can find ebooks by using the library's advanced catalog search feature. Enter your search terms into the search box and limit the collection to "Electronic Book."  Using this limit should ensure that all of your results link to online books.

When you find a book that looks good on the results page, click on the title to view the full catalog entry. Use the link in the "Online Information" section to access the ebook. Please note that if you are accessing the ebook from an off-campus location, you will be prompted to log in with your Celt ID and password.

Ebook Databases

You can also search our ebook collections by going directly to each of our four ebook databases.
