Q: How can I find out if a book is available online?
Answered by: Jonas Baker

You can search for online books in either Orbis or Quicksearch. The Yale Library has a many books available in electronic format, but that does not mean that every book we have is available online.

For information about our major eBook platforms, like Books24x7, Ebook Central and Overdrive, check out our eBook LibGuide.


Use the "advanced search" in Orbis. Type in your title, author etc and then select "Electronic Resource" from the "Medium" drop down menu.


Also, try using our new Quicksearch to look for books and articles that are available.  You can tailor your search results to show online books only.  After submitting your keyword in the search box, click on "Books +" and you can then refine your search further by clicking on "Online" under the format bar on the left side of the page:
