About the Emory Libraries ebook collections available to Emory students, faculty, and staff

Searching for E-Books in Library Search

Our priority is to make the Library Search your first stop for accessing e-book content accessible at Emory Libraries. Finding e-books in Lo Library Search begins when you conduct your first search. On the left-hand side of the results screen, you will be able to select (filter) titles available online, and limit to books. You can also perform an advanced search, and combine fields, and limit to just online access. . 


Plugins to Access Emory's Digital Collections

You have 3 main options when you are browsing the Internet to determine if Emory owns or subscribes to a book or journal.

1) LibKey Nomad is a free plugin for Google Chrome that helps you access scholarly journal articles. Once it knows you're affiliated with Emory, LibKey Nomad checks the web page of the article you're viewing to see if it's available at Emory. If it is, you'll see a graphic in the bottom left corner of your browser window that looks like this:

2) For most all browsers, use the Emory Proxy Resolver bookmarklet to redirect you to any of Emory's subscriptions of web pages you are visiting.

  1. Drag the Emory Proxy Resolver button to your bookmarks toolbar. If you don't have your browser's bookmarks bar enabled, you will need to enable it if you intend to use this method.
  2. When you need to load a book or journal article from off campus, click the bookmark. It should route the page through EZProxy and give you access.
