Research Guide for Using Library Search to Find Books

How to Find EBooks Using the Library's Search

To find books on your topic try a Keyword search.

Filter (limit) the results to Claremont Colleges and eBook. Ebooks cannot be borrowed, but they can be purchased by the library. If you do not find any suitable books, you can take off the Claremont Colleges filter, and leave the eBook filter. If you find a book not owned by Claremont that you would like, email the librarian. The eBook can be ready in a matter of days (or even same day sometimes)

Find books using the library search

You can use Library Search to search for books, videos and DVDs, music scores, and other materials owned by the Claremont Colleges Library. There are many ways to search; for example, by author, by title, or by keyword.

    • Find Books Using Simple Keywords

If you're looking for information on a topic you're researching, use the basic search. Enter the most important words from your topic into the search box and click search.

Example: to find out about the effect of violence in the media on young children, try keywords like media violence children.

 

To find a book by either the Title of the book or by the name of its author you will need to select the Advanced Search option.

 

    • Find Books by Author Name

If you are looking for something by a particular author or creator, you will first need to select Author Phrase from the pull down menu in Advanced Search.  Once Author Phrase is selected, enter "last name, first name" into the search box and click search.

Example: Obama, Barack

 

    • Find Books by Title

If you are looking for something by a particular title, you will first need to select Title Phrase from the pull down menu in Advanced Search.  Once Title Phrase is selected, enter the title of the book into the search box and click search.

Example: for the title The Economics of Energy and the Production Process: an Evolutionary Approach, type the whole title or type just the first few words in order: the economics of energy.
