This guide describes the many e-book resources available through the NU Library and how to use them.

Find E-Books in Roadrunner Search

NavigatorSearch is the central search box found on the Library's homepage. NavigatorSearch searches most of our Library's database content, so it is a great starting point for any research topic.

To search only for books using NavigatorSearch, type your keyword search into the box and click Go. Then, on your results page look to the “Refine Results” area on the left hand side of your screen. Scroll down to the Source Types limiter and check mark the box next to Books. Make sure to also check mark the box next to Full Text under “Limit To” to ensure your results only contain e-books which are immediately accessible through NU Library.
