Finding eBooks with Easy Search
Easy Search is the fastest way to locate Library eBooks
Easy Search searches many resources at once and provides a list of resources available through a variety of sources including the library catalog, electronic journals, eBooks, Google Books, IDEALS and more.
Easy Search Results are broken down into categories.
The eBook results are listed under the category "Books, Multimedia in UIUC & Illinois Libraries and Full-Text Books."
For UIUC catalog results, a separate "E-Book matches" link is on the right after the total matches link. There are also links to eBooks by publisher (i.e. Springer, Elsevier, etc) and Google Books results.

Electronic books from other libraries cannot be accessed even though they appear in the I-share catalog.
