How can I search for only eBook titles that my institution has available in a particular user profile?

You can use the following search string in the Find field in EBSCOhost, after selecting the eBook collection databases in your profile, to return a result list of only eBooks your institution purchased/owns under that search profile:

FB N

This search will omit public domain (“free book”) titles from the search results.

Please note, this search will also return eBooks purchased using the Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA) access model that have not yet been triggered, and are not yet owned by your institution.

In order for this search to work properly, you should only be searching eBook collection databases; including non-eBook databases in your search will return unexpected results.
