When you use JEWL to search for a specific book, it does two things at once.

  • Searches the Walker Library Catalog
  • Searches the contents of the databases that we purchase through the vendor EBSCO.

Therefore, if you are looking for a particular book, it may show up in the results as The Bill James Handbook which the library does not have access to in electronic or print version, but which is indexed in one of those EBSCO databases (thus why you may see the chapters listed individually.) 

To locate a book in JEWL :

  • Use the Limit To options on the left on the Results page to see if we actually have the book in the collection.  
  • Choose Online + Print in the Limit To options.
  • This displays ONLY books we have in the collection, electronic or physical.
  • To limit to physical books in the Library, choose Walker Library under Location.

Note:  If you only need books, try searching the Library Catalog rather than JEWL Search.
