Strategies to Find Online Books
There is no one comprehensive source or method to identify and locate online books available to NYU users, nor is there one platform to search across NYU ebooks. Methods include:
- Search Summon, a resource that allows users to search WITHIN and ACROSS NYU ebook collections. Law-only and other content though is not available on Summon.
- Search Julius and Bobcat (Bobst's catalog) for ebook titles. They include links to many (but not all) online books available through Library databases.
- Search an individual Library ebook resource. Ebook collections geared to historical books are available here. Click here to learn how to find resources by publisher.
- Try accessing a resource like HathiTrust, Google Books, Internet Archive, OAIster.
- For foreign and international online books, see this research guide and this page in this guide.
