E-books Guide @ HKBU Library: Finding e-books

Everything you need to know about finding and using e-books in HKBU Library and beyond.

Searching for e-books

Searching for e-books in OneSearch

OneSearch is the best place to find individual e-books. When searching for a particular book, simply search for the title. If it is in the Library's collection, we may have the print version, the e-book, or both. This will be indicated in the results list.

To limit a topic search to our e-book collection:

  1. Start searching using keywords for your topic. 
  2. Once you have a list of search results, you will need to filter your search:
    • under the 'Availability' filter on the right: choose 'Full Text Online'
    • under the 'Resource Type' filter on the right: choose 'Books'
    • click Apply Filters
  3. View e-books by selecting the Online Access option for each title you want to read and follow the link to access the e-book.

Check out the video below to see how it's done!
