Searching for books in EAGLEsearch allows users to search both our physical collection (available in the library), as well as those eBooks located in our online databases (i.e. AccessEngineering, Ebook Central, etc.).
Place quotation marks around two or more words that should be searched as an exact phrase. For example, "human factors".
EAGLEsearch allows for Boolean search operators such as AND and OR; however, the operators must be written in ALL CAPS.
Put "AND" between your search terms to ensure that each term is present somewhere in your search results. For example, pilot AND fatigue.
Put "OR" between your search terms to ensure that your search results contain either search term. For example, aircraft OR airplane.
Parentheses "()" can be used to order and combine search concepts. For example, "human factors" AND (aircraft OR airplane).
Place a * (asterisk) at the end of a root word to search for variant word endings. For example, comput* will find compute, computer, computers, computes, computing, 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., click on or hover over the link.
Searching for books in EAGLEsearch will limit your results to those listed simply as Book or eBook.
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 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 EAGLEsearch 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.
