  • GVHS also has ebooks for researching some popular research topics.

    Here's how to find those.

    When you find an ebook you wish to read, simply click on the "open" link (to the right of the title). This will open the book as a PDF right in your internet browser.

    Once the book is open, you can click on the "more" icon in the top left hand corner of the document. This will allow you to see the table of contents for the book. You can jump directly to other chapters this way.

    You will also see a "citations" tab. If you click that tab, you will be given the citation for the book, which you can copy and paste directly into your Noodletools or Works cited page.
