The Optometry Library offers access to many thousands of electronic books. 

The list below is not a complete list of titles but more of a sampling of important and/or representative titles. Most e-books are listed in IUCAT, with the exception of the most recently published titles.  Searching the publishers' websites is a way to identify chapters or sections that are not indexed in IUCAT.



AccessMedicine offers multiple titles covering basic and clinical science within the medical field.  AccessMedicine lists all available textbooks under the "Textbooks" tab.  The "Features" tab allows users to access other resources while the "Advanced Search" tab assists users in finding specific information.


The IUB libraries have access to Springer e-books from 2005-2013.  The best way to find these titles and to identify the most recently added titles is to search SpringerLink.  Once you enter relevant keyword(s) in the search box, you can limit your search by selecting "books" or "book chapters" from the "content type" limits on the left-hand side of the search results page. Springer publishes in the area of medical topics as well as image analysis.



IU libraries (system-wide) have access to Wiley e-books from 2007-2010. Wiley titles from other years that were purchased individually are listed below or in IUCAT.



The IUB libraries have access to Elsevier titles from 2008-2013. The latest titles might not yet be listed in IUCAT. Another  way to see a list of these titles is to go to the website, click on "Browse" in the upper left corner and then click the boxes so "Full-text available" and "All books" are the only ones checked. After you click on "Apply" you will just see e-books we have access to. It is possible to limit to subscribed e-books with "Search" too.



The IUB libraries also offer access to eBrary electronic books.



HathiTrust makes the digitized collections of some of the nation’s great research libraries available for all. Hathi Trust Digital Library provides full text searching across the more than 1.6 billion pages (4.6 million volumes) in its collections but displaying the full-text for post-1922 publication dates is limited. To search for a book or journal title, under “Catalog Search” enter title, select “Title” and click on “Find.” You may limit your search to “Full view only.”   You must login to download the entire PDF file from a book or journal.
