Hello! My name is Ryan Tolnay and I am the Global, University Studies, and School of Individualized Study Liaison Librarian. Although I am located here in Rochester, I am here to support RIT students all over the world at our global campuses!
We have so many resources available here at the library: physical and electronic books, journals, academic articles, videos, images, and much more. I can assist you with accessing these library resources, finding books and articles on a research topic, or anything else related to academic research. RIT Libraries remains committed to our students, no matter where they are in the world!
If you have any questions about this guide or accessing library resources while studying abroad, please feel free to contact me by clicking on the green button that says Chat/Email/Appointments at the top of this guide.

After you have generated your results list in Summon, look at the left margin column to select the options for filtering your results. Your original results list will likely contain sources that are books (print and electronic), journal articles, newspaper articles, magazines, streamed media, etc. If you are interested in focusing your results to only books, choose the "Book/Ebook" option to filter your results to only that type of source.
The RIT Library has a continually growing collection of e-books in a diverse range of subject areas. You can easily locate e-books using the refinement filters within Summon. Conduct your Summon search, refine your search to "items with full text online" and limit the content type to "Books/ebook". Your list of results will now be only e-books.
