eBook tips

To find e-books, search the library's catalogue and narrow results to those available online, or search one of our e-book collections. If you want to use an e-book while off campus, you must connect to get access from anywhere first.

Use interlibrary loan (ILL) to request books not available from Waterloo

Use interlibrary loan (ILL) if you cannot find the book you want in the Library's catalogue. The Library will borrow it from another institution, usually at no cost to you.
