Definition: E-book A book that has been digitized and is available online. Because e-books usually exist in print and online versions, they are different from websites. The content in e-books has gone through an editorial process that helps to establish and verify its information. Glossary of Research Terms. Southwestern Oregon Community College, July 23 2009 (accessed August 24, 2010).
E-book Capabilities An electronic book is typically delivered over a computer network. E-book capabilities vary by vendor, but most offer hyperlink navigation and keyword searching within the text. Printing and downloading functions are usually available, but are restricted to protect copyrights. Library and Information Technology Glossary. University of North Texas Health Science Center Library. May 12, 2010 (Accessed August 24, 2010)
To find books by title, click on the appropriate Books collection alphabetical letter. Note that there is a View complete list of books option although this drop down menu does not have hypertext links to the specific titles. You will need to go back to the Books collection A-Z list to open any e-books.
We have opened the A list of Books by Title. In January 2013, the John Wiley books were added to the e-book collection. Including the Elsevier e-books, there are over 20,000 titles. Note, in the highlighted box, that the list includes non health-related titles. You will need time to locate the titles that will be of use to you.
Now opened is the O list from the Books by title drop down menu. Again, the format is divided into Accessible Content (the default) and All Items options. This example is for a Group A institution with no exclusions. Note the two titles from Oxford University Press.

The Oxford Textbook of Medicine is one of the foremost international textbooks of internal medicine. It provides practical guidance on the clinical management and prevention of disease, with in-depth coverage of the traditional specialty areas. The initial page contains an expandable table of contents that details the contents of each topic.
We have expanded the Contents for chapters 7 (Infection) and 8 (Sexually Transmitted Diseases). Note that, for most chapters, you can get a summary [Essentials] and view the graphics separately [Browse Figures].
We have displayed the Essentials of Chapter 8.1 – Epidemiology of sexually transmitted infections. You can click on the [Full Text] link for the complete text of this sub-chapter.
