Finding eBooks

The University has access to not only print books and journal databases, but to many platforms with eBooks. The eBook platforms below allow for full text search, an advantage it has over many of the research databases. Some eBooks are also listed in MERLIN and linked to the database they come from. Please note that if the eBook in MERLIN is associated with a different campus (UMSL, UMKC, Missouri S&T, etc) you will not be able to access it.
