I Only Want To Find E-Books

There is no one-step way to search only for e-books in the library catalog IUCAT. But these tips will make it easier. 

1. To search only for items at IUB, click the "Campus" link in the left-side menu and select the "Bloomington" link. 

2. To limit to books, click on the "Format" link in the left-side menu and then select "Book."

3. Books available electronically will have the "Online Resource" icon. Click on the item's title to see the full record and to see if a link to the item is available through the Bloomington campus. 


*Note that IUB students, faculty, and staff can only access e-books that are available through the Bloomington campus. E-books that are only available through other IU campuses cannot be accessed.

If a specific book that you need is not available through the IU Libraries, request it through Interlibrary Loan.
