Social Work: Finding Books

FIND ELECTRONIC BOOKS

LBC OneSearch

LBC OneSearch is a single search box experience that allows you to search for books, electronic books, journal articles, and sources of other formats all simultaneously. Here's how to retrieve only electronic books using LBC OneSearch:

  • Type in relevant search terms and select "Search."
  • To limit your search to electronic books, go to the column on the left side of the screen: "Refine Results."
  • Check the box "eBooks" under the heading "Source Types."
  •  This will reduce your search to just electronic books. 

Additional Databases for Electronic Books

Google Books is a project to digitize and put the full-text of books online. Most of the full-text books are older and out of copyright; for books that are newer and/or still within copyright, you will find only excerpts, with links to libraries (including Hekman Library) that may own the print copy.
