Accessing an e-book in the UCSB Catalog

A keyword search for biofuel brings results for both books and e-books.  To access the online version of a book, click either the title of the book, or the "Internet Resource" and call number. 

Clicking on the book title will take you to the record page for the title you selected (see image below). The Online field will provide a link that takes you directly to the online version of the book.

Clicking on the Internet Resource and call number  link will direct you to a slightly different page that also includes a link Online (see image below).
