2. Refine the search results

On the left of your results list, there are features to help you improve your search.

By applying these features, known as limiters or filters, you can narrow the number of your results to make them more relevant to your query.

3. Decide on an ebook

You can read through the detail page of an ebook by clicking its title to decide if the ebook meets your study or research needs. The detail page contains bibliographic data, a short description, the table of contents, and other information about the ebook.
