To search for eBooks:

1.    Go to the Library homepage

2.    Enter your search terms (e.g.title and/or author) into the Library search box. If you know the title use double quotation marks (e.g. "Handbook of social psychology")

3.    Above the box select Books only

4.    If there are both e-books and print books in your results list, to display ebook results, from the left hand side select Show only: Full Text Online and Content Type: Books. The Show Only: Available in Library option will display print books.

To open and view individual e-books click on the relevant title or Available Online. If you are not on campus you will be prompted to enter your Western Account details.

Please ensure that Pop-up Blockers are turned off when viewing E-titles on your computer.  If you are unsure how to do this please see the FAQ: How do I configure my Browser for Off Campus Access?

When you finish with the eBook, remember to click on "Close". This allows another user to access.
