How to search the Wright State Catalog to access e-books and to request books for pickup at the Dunbar Library

The video below displays a search for a specific book title, but you can keep it at the default keyword search option to determine if there are any books or book chapters related to your topic.  

To limit your search to ebooks, change the drop down menu option from "View Entire Collection" to

To view an ebook, open the catalog record and click the "Connect from off-campus" link in the record. 

  • If you are taken to an OhioLINK authentication page (red and white), choose Wright State University from the list of institutions and enter your first and last name and UID number.
  • If you are taken to a Wright State authentication page (green and white), enter your campus user name (w number) and password.

Use the "Request" option if you want to visit Dunbar Library to pick up a physical book.

EBSCO eBooks - Full Download (Borrowing) versus Limited Viewing

Many EBSCO ebooks only allow one person at a time to use the full book.  If you download an entire ebook from EBSCO, you are actually borrowing /checking it out for whatever the length of the EBSCO loan period is. This means that no other users will be able to access the ebook while you have it.   

Note: When printing, emailing, or saving PDF pages from an EBSCO ebook, you are limited to downloading 100 pages of content or less, but it does NOT check out the book to you.  This means the book remains available so other users can view the book, download up to 100 pages, or borrow a book. 

Downloading specified pages may be sufficient if a relatively small portion of the book is needed for reference, as in the Corsini example in the video below.  If you need to access a lengthier portion of an ebook or an entire ebook, you must use the Full Download / Borrow option.
