The initial link, (E-BOOKS IN THE RHODES LIBRARY CATALOGUE) takes you to the Library's    catalogue records for our e-books (over 7500) where you may browse titles and link to the e-books. 
If you wish to limit the list by adding keywords please use the Modify Search option on the Catalogue and add these to the search box provided.
