Foundations of Research and Evidence-Based Practice: Find Books & eBooks

Reference eBooks

Purdue University Libraries purchase many eBooks for you to read books from your computer.

There is no standard format for e-Books.  Read each eBook vendor’s instructions to determine how to access sections of a book, print a selection, etc. If you are using an iPad, a Kindle, or other reader, go to "Using E-Readers & E-Books" guide to learn about reading eBooks using readers.

See below, reference eBooks related to evidence-based practice.

Finding Books @ Purdue

There are many Libraries on the Purdue campus, but the Books and Media on the Libraries website searches the collections of all, including eBooks. Boosk and Media search results will tell you where books are located, and if they're available to check out. 

If the Libraries don't own or provide online access to a book or article you want, log-in to InterLibrary Loan (ILL) to request the book from another library.

Locating and Using eBooks & eReaders

Search Google Books

Most books available online (for free) are older titles - published before 1923 and in public domain.
