Electronic Books from ebrary

As of January 25, CUNY has access to 46,000 scholarly books in all disciplines from ebrary.  In addition to finding these books through author, title, subject, and keyword searches in the CUNY Catalog, it may be beneficial to browse ebrary directly to see what types of books are available.  For example, the 5,723 titles under Language and Literature include 1,155 general literature, 1,120 English literature, 1,084 philology and linguistics, and 980 American literature titles, as well as hundreds of other titles about literature and language studies in languages other than English.  Using the advanced search and the text and key fields option will find books in which your topic is mentioned.  For example, searching the CUNY Catalog for film noir and ebrary finds seventeen titles, while a text search of ebrary for film noir finds 1,272 titles, with the ones mentioning film noir most often appearing first.  Select the Sign In button to create an ebrary account so that you can place selected titles in a Bookshelf.  Select My Settings to manage exporting records to EndNote or RefWorks.  For assistance in using ebrary or any other library resource, contact the subject specialist in your discipline.
