Geology and Geosciences: E-BOOKS

About E-Books

Most of our e-books are in the UC San Diego Library Catalog, and you can find them by searching within the Electronic Materials subset of the Library Catalog.

Once you're in the e-book collection itself, you can browse by title or search the full-text of the entire collection.

In most collections, you can print/save desired chapters as PDF files. In other collections, you may have limited ability to save or print pages.

If we don't have an e-book you need, check Roger or Melvyl to get a print copy.

For more detailed information about our eBooks collections, using mobile devices, and types of packages, please see our eBooks guide.
