How to Find Books

The quickest way to find a book is to type the ISBN into the Search box at the top of any page without any spaces or hyphens – just a string of 10 or 13 digits. You can also search by title, author, publisher and synopsis.  If you would like to search the entire text of the book, please use the advanced search.

If the book is not available you can request it and NCBI will do their best to source an electronic file – this may be a publisher file, or one from another UK education collection member.
