The UT Libraries buy or lease e-books from a variety of vendors. These e-books are subject to various DRM restrictions on access and printing, depending on the vendor and/or publisher. The library does not control these restrictions. All locally available e-books are listed in our Library Catalog. You can limit a search to "electronic resources" by using the pull-down menu. If we have both print and e-book formats for a particular book, you may not find both records in the same keyword search. To make sure you see both versions if they exist, do a title search. For more information see the Finding e-books page.
Search the full text of millions of books included in the Google Print project. This includes materials scanned from participating libraries, and some publisher-provided e-books. Full text of copyrighted books is not visible except in limited snippets. Search UT's Library Catalog to see if we have a print copy.
Over 5 million digitized titles, mainly from Google Books scanning projects, are included in this shared repository. Viewing full text of copyrighted titles is not allowed, but there is a small subset of public domain titles, mostly before 1923. Search UT's Library Catalog to see if we have a print copy.
