Find Books with Discovery

reading a book iconThe library's book collections include books in two mediums, physical books and electronic books.  To search for books held by the library, use DISCOVERY.  

DISCOVERY is the library’s tool that searches for books, journal articles, videos, and e-resources at once. It can be accessed from the large search box on the top center of the library's homepage, or through the Advanced Search link just below.  For a detailed tutorial on using DISCOVERY, see this guide.

To see only books in your results, use the filters on the left-hand column of your results page.


Electronic Books:

In Discovery, if a book is an electronic book, simply click on  view ebook button  to access the book online. Ebooks can be viewed online or downloaded in full for 21 days, and you can also download some portions of them in PDF format.

You can also go directly into Ebook Central to find books from the library's ebook collection.

While off campus you will be prompted to login with your NDNU email credentials before being able to read any ebook or access Ebook Central.


Print Books:

Although the library is currently closed to in-person services, you can still borrow print books thanks to our Curbside Pickup option. If you find a print book you'd like to borrow, click the title to view it's full catalog listing and click on "Hold Item for Pickup". When the hold is ready, you'll get an email from the library to schedule a time for pickup.

In order to borrow print books you'll need to activate your Library Account. This is separate from your NDNU email, moodle, or portal accounts and keeps track of only the physical materials you have checked out of the library. Select "Set/Reset Password" the first time you access and create a unique password.
