How To Search Free Ebooks Independently Like A Search Engine How To Search Free Ebooks Independently Like A Search Engine Ideally, the first step that you need to take is to identify the status of the ebook title that you’re searching for – to identify whether it’s free or not. A quick search through your favorite search engines should give you a pretty good idea. If the results you’re getting are mostly from Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, or basically any book review sites out there, chances are, you’re searching for a commercial book.

Many of the resources once available on Etext are now available via VIRGO, the Library’s online catalog and the primary access point for all U.Va. Library digital texts and images. In the course of migrating thousands of texts from Etext to VIRGO, we determined that certain resources were not eligible for inclusion, most often due to copyright issues.
