Searching for eBooks/Books @ the VIU Library

The VIU Library has eBooks on a wide range of subjects. You can access these eBooks from on or off campus using your Library ID and PIN.

Find eBooks using LibrarySearch's eBook search :


Sample title search:  "Bretz's flood : the remarkable story of a rebel geologist and the world's greatest flood"


Sample topic search: scabland* 

(the asterick * allows you to search for different endings e.g. scabland, scablands)


eBooks vary in their format and features depending on the platform which means options such as turning pages, saving, or printing may differ. Please contact a Librarian if you have questions. 


Finding print books : Once you have a search result list, you can limit your titles to print books (instead of ebooks) by selecting the option on the left sidebar under the section, Library Location. For example, selecting Nanaimo will list the print books (within this result list) that are available at the Nanaimo Campus library.
