Books, journal articles and just about everything else available at the University of Rochester can be found through Articles & Books, at http://library.rochester.edu
By default, Articles & Books searches across all of the available metadata—e.g., searching for Harry Potter Rowling will retrieve all of the books, book reviews, newspaper & magazine articles, DVDs and more where that search phrase is present. To find something more specific, start off with an Advanced Search, or drill down using Article & Books' filtering features, which show up on the left hand side of your search results.
WorldCat is a database of over two billion books and other materials housed at libraries around the world. If something you need isn't showing up in Articles & Books, WorldCat is a great place to see if it is available.

How to Limit Your a Catalog Search to E-books
The library also has several collections of e-books that are worth searching in for your topic. While books in these collections are pulled into all of our catalog searches, relevant titles can sometimes get buried within thousands of results. Try searching these databases directly for e-books on your topic:
Ebook Central is U of R's primary ebook platform with thousands of titles from all disciplines. Many of these titles can be found through the library's main search page, but searching Ebook Central directly is a great way to make sure you don't miss ebook titles relevant to your topic.
Like Ebook Central, EBSCO provides access to a collection of ebooks on a wide range of topics. This collection of ebooks isn't quite as extensive as Ebook Central, but you still may find some useful books on your topic in this database.
Not all titles are downloadable. It depends on the agreement with the publisher, however many titles can be downloaded. If downloading is permitted, you will see a button in the results list that says "download offline," and on the record for the book itself, a utton that says "Download this ebook" Make sure that you have an up to date version of Adobe Digital Editions.
