Search for your library-related question here.

I'm not sure if this book is a print book or an e-book. How can I tell if we have an e-book version?

 

When you search in the library catalog, you may see both print books and e-books in the results. You can tell whether you are looking at a physical item by looking at the search results page.

For more assistance finding e-books in the library, see our How To: Find E-books (in Linus Catalog) Youtube Video.

Library catalog search with print and e-book results

Under the title and author information for a book that is located in the library, you'll see the location, call number, and status of that book.

For e-books, there will be no preview of location information and the icon to the left will be slightly different to show that it is an e-book.

If you are not sure, click on the title of the book and check the full record for the book. If the title is an e-book, you will see a Read Online link or a long URL that you can click on.
