Searching EBSCO Ebooks

EBSCO eBooks may be located via the Monmouth College Library catalog or by searching the EBSCO eBook database.

How do I know what interface is best for my research?

You will likely locate eBooks most often during a library catalog search, however, the EBSCO interface does allow for fulltext searching of the entire book, thus allowing very specific exploration and discovery.
