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.

Virology - Search Terms

The following list provides examples of keywords that can be used to search for books/ebooks on topics in virology.

When searching in LibrarySearch, 'and'  is the default between terms, so searching for:  virus society, searches for: virus and society.

 

Use quotations around two or more words to search for a concept/phrase.   For example:  "immune response""viral protein*".

(Search for the titles of books and articles in the same way, using quotations around the titles.)

 

Note:  Use the symbol * to search a keyword with various endings.  For example, searching:  vaccin* will search for:  vaccine, vaccines, vaccination, and vaccinations:
