Find EBooks through Case & OhioLINK

Accounting Books & Ebooks

Case Catalog -  EBooks
Look for book or series titles  on the Case Catalog–an ebook link displays if we have access to an electronic version. Often 2 links will be listed, for both print and electronic versions.

If a book title is not on the Case Catalog, or is unavailable, simply click the icon "Search OhioLINK" at the top of the catalog page. Copies found in OhioLINK can be requested online for delivery back to KSL.

Case Catalog Search Tips

Discover more in the Case Catalog when you do a (power) Subject Search!

Subject searches are targeted & powerful, and provide good browsing for new ideas. The resulting sub-topics cascade out in an A-Z fashion, offering you more options in smaller yet still relevant sections.

  • Example: Accounting = +6000 items, 34 primary & hyperlinked sub-categories (accrual, amortization, depreciation, etc.)
  • Cost Accounting is one, with 267 titles in it
  • Cost Accounting will then have other sub-categories like Case Studies, History, Periodicals, and more
  • In any result set, use the Sort button to rearrange the results–use Reverse Year Sort for new titles!

Get Books from Other Ohio Libraries!

If Case doesn't have the item you need, click the OhioLINK icon on the top of the Case Catalog. If available, click "Request this item."

  • Follow prompts & select any pickup library–it arrives within 3-5 weekdays: you'll receive an email arrival notification.
  • How long...? OhioLINK items loan for 42 days (faculty) or 21 days (others at CASE) & are renewable "up to" 6 more times, for potential generous use. If the owning library needs it back & you can't renew it, return it and order another copy!


Good for verifying a troublesome citation or finding more beyond Ohio. Default owned-by locations are for Ohio libraries, but results include world holdings. Use OCLC# if requesting later via ILLiad.
