Helpful Hints for finding ebooks at NYU
Finding ebooks – we do our best to ensure that all of our ebooks appear in Bobcat. When searching BobCat, you can limit your results to e-books only by selecting "Electronic Books" under "Genre."
Sometimes, however, titles we own or can access may not yet be in the catalog. Most books from larger publishers are available on our NYU ebrary platform and from sites run by the publishers themselves. Other books can be found in subject-specific databases.
We know it’s difficult to search all of these places, so we’re experimenting with a new cross-book search which includes millions of ebooks from many different sources (including those above as well Hathi Trust and other freely available collections). Try it!
