Q

How do I view or search for a online book (ebook)? What about downloading or printing?

Answer

To restrict a search in FindMore@NUSL to ebooks only, select "items with full-text online" and "book/ebook"

Click on the title or "Full Text online"  and in the library record click on the link to the ebook (see below) to get to the ebook.

  

Not every title is available as an Ebook.

Ebooks are available on many different platforms (where we have selected access) including

Download and printing of Ebooks

Access to all online books, journals , databases is via your NUSNET ID and password and depending on the type of platform and title you might be able to 
  • Download the whole chapter of book (e.g Sciencedirect E-books)
  • Download a few pages (e.g Most EBSCO E-books)
  • Read page by page online (e.g EBSCO E-books, Hathitrust)
Do note that not all platforms allow you to download or print for offline reading. 
Please refer to the printing/download guide for ebooks or the online help of each e-book platform for more details.
