II. Features of your library

You have several ways to access your publications:

  • Using your library all your publications appear as thumbnails. By clicking on them, you access directly the contents of the publication in reading mode or as part of a collection. Items in your Library can be sorted in alphabetical order, last access date, publication date or a custom order by “drag and drop”.
  • Using search capabilities, by typing the title of the book, its authors, or directly by full-text search. You can also filter by publication type, brand or practice area.
  • Accessing through “my favorites” icon, which gives you access to the publication(s) you’ve tagged as favorites.

CCH eBooks offers you 2 search possibilities:

  • A search only on titles and authors of publications: when you start typing, a suggestion of titles or names of authors appears automatically below your search, if a search term corresponds to them.
