Strategies for Finding E-books

The CDU Health Sciences Library subscribes to more than 200,000 ebook titles.  Most of these ebooks are included in “packages” from different vendors.  


To find an ebook by title or to find content in an ebook, use one of the following strategies:

!. Use the title/ISBN search box above.  Use the drop-down box to select title or ISBN.  This search does not search the contents of the ebooks, and subject searching is not available.  To browse ebooks, click here.


2.  Look in the individual vendor packages.  Descriptions and features of each of these packages can be found in the in the box to the right in this LibGuide.  Most of them allow searching across all of the titles in that package.  Many have other features as well.


3.  Use one of the selected subject lists in the left panel of this LibGuide.  Note that these lists do not include all of the ebooks on a particular subject.

AccessMedicine contains about 150 full-text ebooks.  Several of them are required textbooks for CDU programs. It's possible to search across all of these books.  In many cases, it is also possible to create quizzes to test your knowledge.  To do this, create a personal account on the AccessMedicine site. You can download citation files for individual chapters to EndNote or copy/paste citations in several reference styles.

The library subscribes to about 25 ebook titles from StatRef, but several of them are required textbooks for CDU courses.  You can create a download file for EndNote for the whole book (not individual chapters).
