Help with wiley online library E-Books

Below are instructions for browsing, searching, navigating, and printing when using the Wiley Online Library e-book interface.



The Table of Contents appears on the opening page, below the introductory material.

Each chapter or section includes a Summary, a PDF copy of that chapter or section's text, and an option to view the chapter's lsit of references.

The last entry in the Table of Contents usually is the Index to the volume.  The Index includes page number references, but not direct links to chapters.


The Search box is located in the upper-right corner of the opening page.   Results of searches will lead you to the chapter containing your search term, but not directly to the page(s) containing the term.

Unless you change this option, searching should be limited to the text of the book you are viewing ("In this book").  

(If you use the drop-down menu to change searching to "All content," you will retrieve lots of references to material not available through W&L's subscription.)

  • To search for entries containing more than one word, simply enter the words.   Example:  liberation theology
  • To search for multi-words terms or phrases, enclose the words with quotations marks.  Example:  "liberation theology"
  • To search for various forms of a word, use an asterisk (*).  Example:  theolog* finds theology, theological, etc.
