Paralegal Research Guide: Books & E-books

Provides resources for those interested in the paralegal profession.

Library Catalog

Tips for searching

Type keywords in the search field to find books that you are looking for.

If you get too many results, try using the Refine my Results bar on the left to receive more accurate results.

If you cannot find the book that you need from one of our libraries, try searching libraries statewide through UBorrow. Once you perform a search, there will be a link in the upper right hand corner.

E-books

E-books are books that have been downloaded into the library catalog for increased access.  They contain all of the content of a regular book.  E-books contain many useful features that make them easier to use than print books.  Such as:

  • You can access them whenever you want, whether or not the library is open.
  • While your session may expire with an e-book, you can always renew it.
  • Many e-books have a table of contents which allows you to jump to whatever chapter you are interested.
  • E-books have a search bar which allows you to search a word, phrase, or a few words. The search will give you every time the word has been used in the book and will take you directly to those pages.

To learn how to download ebooks onto your computer or tablet see our research guide on the topic here.
