eBooks at CSM

CSM Libraries provide access to thousands of eBooks, in addition to the physical books found on our shelves.  

When searching for eBooks, you can use many of the same strategies as you use for finding articles in library databases. You can also search using a title, author, or other publication information.

There are two ways to look for eBooks from CSM's databases:

  • E-Journal Portal
  • eBook Collections / Databases

eBooks in the E-Journal Portal

Once you have found a book you are interested in, use the database links provided below the title to access the book.
