E-books in the Merced College Library

Merced College uses OneSearch as our library catalog.  OneSearch searches more than just the resources that Merced College owns.  It will search e-books (we own) and Open Access (we do not own) for you.  You can limit your search to either one or both depending on what you are looking for.

You can also use Google Books to look for e-books.


E-Book Search

You can find e-books in OneSearch as well.  Use the same search parameters as you would when you look for print books except limit the books to Open Access and/or Online Books
