I Only Want To Find E-Books

There is no one-step way to search only for e-books in the library catalog IUCAT. But these tips will make it easier. 

  1. To search only for items at IUPUI, click the "Campus" link in the left-side menu and select the "Indianapolis" link. 
  2. To limit to books, click on the "Format" link in the left-side menu and then select "Book."
  3. Books available electronically will have the "Online Resource" icon. Click on the item's title to see the full record and to see if a link to the item is available through the Indianapolis campus.

If a specific book you need is not available through the IU Libraries or at Indianapolis, request it through Interlibrary Loan.

IMPORTANT NOTE: E-books are restricted by campus, so if you find an e-book not available at Indianapolis, you'll need to request a print version via InterLibrary Loan.
