Electronic books, better known as eBooks, are available through the WorldCat Library Catalog.  When searching WorldCat, you can limit your search to just eBooks using two different methods: specifying the format type through an advanced search, or using the filters on the search results screen.

Advanced Search Method:

1. Navigate to the Advanced Search screen in WorldCat, enter your keywords in the search box at the top of the page.  In the middle of the page under "Limit your search" select eBook from the Format drop-down menu.  Click Search.

2.  Your results will be limited to only eBooks.  Please note that unless you limited your search to only materials within Bertrand Library, your results will also include material from Libraries Worldwide, some of which Bucknell may not have access to.  For more information on searching only within Bertrand Library's collection, click here.


Results Filter Method:

1. Proceed with a standard keyword (or title) search in WorldCat.  You will notice that your results return All Formats.

2. To retrieve only eBooks, select the eBooks button from the Format filter menu along the left-hand side.
