Library Search for Ebooks

Library Search will find ebooks from all of the sources to which Temple has access. You can search title words, topics, subjects and author names.  The results are first displayed by "Relevance", a calculation of what matches your interest most. You can then use the filters along the left hand side to make the search more specific.
