How do I limit my search to online books?


Go to the Library webpage

In the search box near the top of page click on the Catalog tab.  

Type the subject, title, or author you are looking for and click on the magnifying glass at the right end of the search box. 

On the left side of the results list is a set of limiters.  Click on the boxes to the left Full Text Online (under Show Only) and Books (under Material Type).   

Then click on Apply Filters at the bottom of the column.

We recommend that Purdue Fort Wayne and IU Fort Wayne students, and faculty click on the Sign in button in the gold ribbon above the results list, choose Mastodon Card Holder and login with their Purdue Fort Wayne username and password to insure access to online books.   

Patrons who are not students, staff, or faculty at Purdue Fort Wayne or Indiana Fort Wayne will not be able to access the online versions of some online books.
