eBooks/Books @ the Library

The VIU Library has eBooks on a wide range of subjects. You can access these eBooks from on or off campus using your Library ID and PIN.

Find eBooks using LibrarySearch's eBook search :


eBooks vary in their format and features depending on the platform which means options such as turning pages, saving, or printing may differ. Please contact a Librarian if you have questions. 

 

Finding print books : Once you have a search result list, you can limit your titles to print books (instead of ebooks) by selecting the option on the left sidebar under the section, Library Location. For example, selecting Nanaimo will list the print books (within this result list) that are available at the Nanaimo Campus library.

Finding and Requesting books not in the VIU Library

If the VIU Library doesn't have enough books on your topic, then you can request to borrow books from other libraries. 

First, you can search the WorldCat catalogue to get the citation information of a book you want to order, then use the VIU InterLibrary Loan System to request the book and have it brought to our library.
