Ebook editions from textbook publishers

Published by Dipa Barua

Q. Is it possible to request the ebook of Financial Management: Theory And Practice, Canadian Edition, 3rd ed.?

A. Thanks for submitting a purchase suggestion. I'm afraid that in this case the publisher has not issued an ebook edition that is licensed for sale to libraries. This situation is relatively common among textbook publishers -- in most cases they will only sell print copies to libraries.

Searching the works of an author

Published by Dipa Barua

Q. I just want to vent that the old troy.lib.sfu.ca library search engine, while not as pretty, is DECISIVELY better at making things easy to search for, compared to the bloated search of search.lib.sfu.ca. Although, technically it looks like the troy.lib.sfu.ca equivalent, now it is sfu-primo.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com. Still, I just want to be able to quickly scan all the works of a given author. I don't need to see the book cover, and have it take up space as I hit the next page, next page, and next page.
