Searching for E-Books in DiscoverE

Our priority is to make DiscoverE your first stop. Finding e-books in discoverE begins when you conduct your first search. On the left-hand side of the results screen, you will be able to select  to show only on "Full Access Online" or "eBooks."  If you wish to limit a search just to ebooks, you can also use the Advanced Search and select material type: eBooks.

Use discoverE to find books, journals, videos, government documents, microfilm collections and other materials at the Emory libraries, including Woodruff; Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library; Goizueta Business; Pitts Theology; Woodruff Health Sciences Center; McMillan Law; Science Commons; Music and Media; and Oxford libraries.

Requests and Recalls

If a book you're looking for is at Oxford College, at the Library Service Center, or checked out, don't fear!

Books that are at the Library Service Center or at Oxford can be requested, and checked out books can be recalled.

In discoverE:

  1. Click the item you'd like to request
  2. Click the "Locate/Request Item" tab
  3. Click the "Request" button [Note: you will need to be logged in to your account for this to appear]
