I'll use this text as an example: Jonsen, A. R., Siegler, M., & Winslade, W. J. (2010). Clinical ethics: A practical approach to ethical decisions in clinical medicine. New York: McGraw-Hill Medical.

1. Search the Library's Catalog for the textbook.

2. In the search results, look for [electronic resource] in the title.

3. If you're on campus, click on the link just below Status.

4. If you're off campus, take a look at the link to figure out where the textbook is located (highlighted in the image below).

5. In MyAthens in Blackboard, look for the link to the resource that has the textbook.
