WPI Library Search

Search for books, articles, media and more!


I am off campus. How can I get into electronic books I found searching the Library Catalog?

The library subscribes to many electronic book collections (JSTOR, SpringerLINK, eBook Collection (EBSCOhost), Ebook Central, Knovel, MIT Press Direct, O’Reilly) which can be searched within our library catalog.

  • Search in WPI Library Search, and then use the search filters on the left to narrow down your search. Under "Availablity," select "Available online." Under "Research Type," select "Books."
  • To access an ebook, click on the "Available Online" link below the title. 
  • Then log in with your WPI username and password.
