Searching for eBooks
There are two main ways to search for eBooks from the VVC library website:
- Search the Library's Online Catalog to find eBooks by author, title, subject, or keyword. You can limit your search specifically to eBooks by using the Custom Catalog Search available under "Advanced Search." Titles can be accessed directly from the catalog by clicking the "URL" link that appears in each record.
- Search the individual eBooks database listed under "Article Databases" on the Library's website. Search options include Keyword, Advanced (author--title--publisher), and Category Browse.
To access the eBook databases from off-campus, you will need a username and password. Students, faculty, and staff can obtain a password by completing the "Remote Database Password Request" form. The remote password will allow off-campus access to eBooks and several other Library subscription databases.
Tip: To open eBook titles directly from the online catalog when off-campus, first login to remote database access and then navigate back to the library online catalog.

Note: Some EBSCOhost eBooks are limited to one person at a time and thus may not always be accessible. Once a title is returned, there is a 15 minute release period before it can be accessed by the same or another user.
