How to Search For and Locate Electronic Books

Searching for and Locating E-Books

Since the Newman Library is closed due to the pandemic, the books in print are not available. However, Baruch students have access to thousands of books in electronic format, or "e-book" format.  Searching for e-books by using OneSearch, a database that makes available books, journals, newspapers and articles, will provide many books.

Once you have searched for a book, review the subject headings that have been assigned to the book.  Clicking the hyperlinks of the subject headings will retrieve books with the same subject headings.

Tips for Searching the Library's Catalog

Advanced Searches in the Library's Catalog enable you to search for:

Known titles and authors

Books and reports with specific keywords

Books and reports in other CUNY libraries.  Circulating materials may be requested to be brought here to the Newman Library.

By the Library of Congress's Subject Headings--which are predetermined and many not always match what you think would be the subject

Tip: Educational change is the Library of Congress subject heading to search by, rather than education reform
