Searching for e-books or e-journals

If you are working or studying from off-campus during the summer, you may wish to search for what e-books or e-journals the library has available. The following steps will lead you to e-books on your chosen topic. Remember you must Sign In for off-campus access to e-books or e-journals to work!!

Step 1: Sign in, so as to ensure you're recognised as an NUI Galway user, even off campus.

Step 2: Carry out your search - simply enter the author, title or subject keyword that you are interested in.

Step 3: Click on 'Show Only Online Resources', which appears just above your result list. This will limit the results to items that match your search criteria and are available online. Any hardcopy printed books or journals will be omitted.

Step 4: If you are only interested in e-books you can now use the Refine my Results functionality on the right hand side of the screen to narrow your results down to books only. Simply click on the word 'Books' under 'Resource Type'. You can do the same for e-journals, by choosing 'journals' from the Resource Type list.
