Ebook Finder's Guide

Helpful Hints for Finding ebooks at NYU

  • The Books & More tab holds many, but not all, of the ebooks to which NYU has access.  Look to the Suggested ebook Databases list below for suggestions on where to find other ebooks we have access to.
  • The ISBN number for an ebook does not coincide with the ISBN for the hard copy.  Therefore it is often better to search by title and publisher using the Full Text Online limiter to find the ebook within the results.
  • Commercially published editions of ebooks are much less likely to be found in our database subscriptions than those published by academic presses.  Examples of commercial publishers are Penguin, Harper Collins, Macmillan and McGraw-Hill.  Examples of academic presses are Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, Yale University Press, etc…
  • ebooks published by a university press are more likely to be found on databases run by those presses.  See the Publisher Specific Databases section below.

Suggested ebook Databases links have been provided, but all of them can be found in Databases A-Z.
