Limiting Search results to "Online Only"

To limit a FoxHunt search to only items which can be accessed digitally, limit your results by selecting a digital content type from your initial search (such as eBooks or streaming videos) or by selecting "Items available online" in the limiters on on the left hand side of the full results page.


Many, but not all, of the ebooks in the James A. Cannavino Library can be accessed through Ebook Central.  Set up an  Ebook Central account to create bookshelves which allow you to save books, create folders, and even highlight passages and take notes.

To search for ebooks, visit Ebook Central directly, or limit a FoxHunt Search to include books and ebooks and limit to items with full text online.
