USING THE LIBRARY CATALOG & ACCESSING EBOOKS

>>> CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE LIBRARY CATALOG <<<

The TUC Library catalog is where you can look up our physical materials (books, anatomical models, etc.), DVDs and streaming movies, and eBooks. 

HOW TO SEARCH THE CATALOG

When searching the catalog, you can choose to search by keyword, author, or title. The simplest way to find your book or other item is to use the KEYWORD tab, as seen below. The keyword search will recognize and retrieve library materials based on subject, author, and title entries of print books and ebooks. For example, to search for materials about anatomy, simply enter "anatomy" in the search box when the KEYWORD tab is highlighted.

To search by author or title click on the corresponding tab. However, using the keyword search will also retrieve materials by author and title. 

PLEASE NOTE: This does NOT search for journals or databases. The TUC Catalog only searches books, ebooks, and other physical items that are able to be checked out from the Library. 

HOW TO LOCATE & ACCESS EBOOKS

How to Locate Ebooks:

To find ebooks, simply look at the item in the results list of your catalog search. For ebooks, you will notice the end of the call numbers have an "EB" and within and right above the location box you will see it say" TUC Electronic Books" and "Electronic Resources", respectively.

How to Access Ebooks:

When accessing ebooks off campus, you will need to login to OpenAthens with your TouroOne login credentials. See box "How to Access Resources with OpenAthens" above. There are a few ways to link to Ebooks:

1) From the catalog, you can click the "Electronic Resources" link, as seen in the image directly above. 

2) You can click the book's title and go into the catalog record. From there in the middle of the page there will be a link to go to the ebook. See example:

3) From links in the research and resource guides or in Canvas. 

*If you have any issues accessing an ebook, please make sure to let the Library know.*
