Free and Extended Access to Materials During COVID-19 (archived): Accessing Electronic Resources Through UR Libraries

Finding ebooks at UR

River Campus Libraries provides access to over one million ebooks covering a large variety of disciplines and publishers. Because our ebooks are available through different databases and websites, the easiest way to find an ebook in UR’s collection is to start on the library's homepage and choose "Library Catalog" from the dropdown box.

To narrow your search to ebooks, choose the Click to access resource and Book/eBook filters from the options on the left-hand side of your results (Show Me)...or use the search box below.


The library also has several collections of ebooks 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 ebooks on your topic:

A note about Kanopy:

River Campus Libraries has recently switched from an unlimited model to a mediated model with Kanopy, meaning that some titles on the platform that used to be freely available will now have to be requested. If you find a title on Kanopy that needs to be requested, you will be shown a request form when you click on the title. Please fill out the form and allow 2-3 days for the request to be processed.
