Catalogue tips – finding and reading items

By Curtin Library 11 August 2017 News & events No Comments »

If an item is physically in the Library, click on the Available at link under the item’s record. This will indicate where it can be found on the shelf as well as if it is already on loan or available for borrowing.

If you only want to see items you can read online, enter your search terms and, under Filter my results on the right hand side of the results page, click on Books from the Resource dropdown menu. Now under Show only click on Available Online. You will now have a list of electronic books and book chapters that you can read online. You can read an eBook on your computer by clicking on the Available Online link in the book’s catalogue record.  If you wish to download an eBook to your mobile device you should visit the eBooks@Curtin LibGuide for instructions, as different collections require different eBook readers.
