Searching Books & E-Books


Books are rarely the most current source of information on a topic, but they are often useful because they offer a broader perspective. 

To search for books on a topic, choose the Books tab, choose Keywords from the dropdown, enter your keywords, and search. 

To find a specific book using OneSearch, choose the books tab and enter the title in quotation marks. 

All of our recent computing science related books are electronic. For instruction in limiting a search to e-books, see the tutorial immediately below.
