Using eBooks

There are three main ways to locate and access the information in eBooks:

 

  1. Table of Contents: You can use the table of contents, located on the left side of the page, to locate topics in the book by headings such as volume, section, chapter, etc.

  2. You can use the index (located through the table of contents).  Once you locate your topic of interest, enter the page number in the box at the bottom center of the page, and click on Go.

  3. You can also search the text of the book, using the search tool in the toolbar on the top right side of the page.  It is the icon of a page with a magnifying glass.  The results of the search will appear at the top center of the page, and they are linked to take you to the pages found.

 

You can use the forward and backward arrows at the bottom of the page to turn the pages as you read.

You can use the tools at the top right side of the page to print, email, and save portions of the book.
