Finding and using electronic books from the JHU libraries..

Google Books

1. Google Books does not know what books JHU has

2. Often, Google Books will direct you to sites that will ask you to pay for an e-book

3. Do not pay! - Look for the book in the library's catalog

4. If we do not have it, use BorrowDirect or Interlibrary Loan under "Request Materials"
