There are three places to search for ebooks

1. UMBrella is one of the best places to search for ebooks. You can search for ebooks by title, author, subject or keyword.

Start your searches for only ebooks by choosing from a selection of filters including Availability, Material Type and Publication Date.

Availability - Limit to Full Text Online - Limits to items that are accessible online

Material Type - Limit to Books

Publication Date - Useful in finding ebooks in specific date ranges

Your searches will include the active filters. Choose Reset filters to start a new search.


2. You can search the library ebook collections individually. The largest ebook collection is Ebook Central and it covers many subjects.

3. You can find ebooks through WorldCat but you must limit your search to UMass Boston

Search for your topic or book then select eBook under Books on the left side of the screen. 

NOTE: You cannot access or borrow ebooks from other libraries.


If you are off campus, when you click on the link to an ebook you will be prompted to enter your campus user name and password.
