Looking for Books/eBooks?

Did you know there is a quick way to search all the books and ebooks to which the Connelly Library has access?

This includes all the books in our catalog and our ebook subscriptions from:

Also included are public domain books scanned by the HathiTrust.

Just go to the Quick Search box in the top left hand corner of the homepage and use the drop down box:

  1. Choose All Books/eBooks
  2. Run your search.

It’s as easy as that!

When you get the Summon results page, you can Refine by Items with full text online  if you want only ebooks.

Summon search defaults changed!

Date Posted: April 4, 2013

We have changed the search defaults for Summon to have Newspaper Articles excluded.  Therefore when you search Summon now,  you will notice that on the left hand side under Refine your Search, the box labelled Exclude Newspaper Articles will be checked.

If you want newspaper articles, just uncheck this option and newspaper articles on your topic will be searched and will appear.
