Can't make it into the library or want to see all of the options available to you? Try looking at some of our Ebook collections! Some of these books are discoverable while using the Library Search, but others can only be discovered by searching the databases themselves. Here are some of the best bet places to look for eBooks:
Indicated in the image below, there are a couple of sections that are particularly helpful in looking at the book record to see if it is something that might be useful for your project.
Further down on the page, under the "Details" heading there are a couple of sections that can be helpful in learning a little more about the book before going to look at it on the shelf:
The Bentley Library uses the Library of Congress (LC) Call Number System as a way to organize our books. These books are shelved by subject, so if you go to look for a book in the library - you might find others on your topic on the shelf right near the one you were looking for!
LC Call numbers are "read" alphanumerically. Look for the letters first, then the numbers!
The "Get It" section of a book record will include the information on where to locate a physical item within the library.
