Note: Using this feature will take you away from this subject guide.
If you're not finding an ebook using the sources in the "Finding Electronic Books" box, you still have some options:
GIL: Searches only items in the GSU Library
GIL Universal Catalog: Searches the contents of 35 academic libraries in Georgia
WorldCat: Searches 10,000 libraries worldwide.
You can search for eBooks from all GSU library ebook databases in the GSU Library's GilFind catalog just as you would search for traditional print books. After you search, tweak your results to show only "full access online" and the "books" format to see only eBooks.

Help! I've found an ebook in the library's catalog and I'm not sure how to download it!
Different providers (i.e. ProQuest, EBSCO, etc.) have different requirements. Check out our Ebooks research guide for information about how to read/download ebooks.
In a pinch, you can also search in our databases for book reviews to get a general sense of the book's argument, even if you can't access the book itself.
Most of the library's article databases allow you to search for book reviews. Here are instructions on how to find book reviews in the most used databases appropriate for research in religious studies:
In databases that do not have a "Book Review" limiting option, you can simply type the words "book review" (in quotes) into one of the Advanced Search option search boxes and then either the title of a specific book or a topic.
