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 read the text online or print/download desired chapters, or the whole book, as PDF files. In some collections, you may see limits and restrictions on the number of pages you are allowed to download or print.
If we don't have an e-Book that you need, check the Melvyl UC and beyond Catalog to request a print copy (Interlibrary loan).
