Finding Books in EAGLEsearch

Searching for books in EAGLEsearch allows users to search both our physical collection (books cataloged in our library catalog), as well as those eBooks located in our online databases (i.e. AccessEngineering, Ebook Central, etc.).  

Each book on the results page will provide a title, author (personal or group/organizational), date, partial abstract, content type and location.  To view additional information about the book such as publisher, number of pages, ISBN number, etc., hover over thelink.

Content Type
Searching for books in EAGLEsearch will limit your results to those listed simply as Book or eBook.



Item Locations
Any books listed in the search results of a books search will provide one of the following locations (to the right of the content type):

  • Full Text Online
  • Citation Online
  • Check Availability


Full Text Online will link to the electronic version of that book (eBook), in one of our research databases or on the publisher's website. In some cases, it may link to a record of that item in our library catalog which should provide a full text link to it. 

Citation Online only provides the citation for that book or eBook and not the full text; however, that does not mean we do not have access to the full text elsewhere.  Please contact Ask a Librarian for assistance in trying to obtain it.

Check Availability is for books from our print collection that have been given a call number (i.e. TL685.35.T47 2016) location and that are located in the Hunt Library. Selecting the link will take you to the record of that item in the library catalog and provide more information about it.
