Most ebooks will have a "search within" or "search this book" feature that will allow you to jump to each mention of your specific topic, saving you a lot of time!  Remember that our library's ebooks come from a variety of different vendors, so each may look a bit different.  Two examples are illustrated below:

In ProQuest Ebook Central, look for the "search within ebook" box and type in the words you would like to find. Read more here.
