The Fuller library offers eBook monographs through the library catalog, or directly through our database subscriptions.

A.  In the Catalog, you can search for desired works by: title (ti:), subject (su:), author (au:), or use the default keyword search. You can also use advanced search for more specific search options.

To find the electronic version of a text, search the library catalog, then:

1. Click the "eBook" and "Fuller Libraries" boxes in the left filter menu. The search result will now only display Fuller eBooks

2. Click on the title of the book.

3. Click the "view eBook" link. (If the link does not work, or takes you to the wrong title, click "report a broken link" to the right of the eBook link under "availability".)

4. If you access off-campus, you will be prompted to provide your Fuller ID user name and password.

5. You can either read the book on screen by clicking on eBook Full Text, or read on your computer using Adobe Digital Editions (available for free download at http://www.adobe.com/products/digital-editions/download.html). Many eBook sites (e.g EBSCO) will require you to create a personal account and login in order to download an eBook.

  • Many eBooks give a checkout limit of 1-7 days when downloading the entire eBook. We cannot extend this limit, but you are welcome to check the eBook out again as many times as you would like. A smaller number of eBooks may have concurrent download usage limits. You will be notified if an eBook has reached its limit, but you will always be able to view it online. Please check back later for download access.

B.  An alternate method is to search some of our eBook database collections directly. While specific eBooks should also be linked to the catalog, searching individual databases can narrow the scope of your search. We recommend searching ProQuest eBook Central and EBSCO eBook academic. If you are wanting electronic reference works, it is helpful to browse the databases available under the "reference" filter, particularly Credo Reference.
