When you click on the full text for an e-book from the Walden Library's Book search, you may see a screen with the word EBSCOhost above some search boxes, like this image: 
 

 

1. To open the e-book, click the PDF Full Text link.

Now you are inside the e-book, as if you had opened up a print book. In the middle of the page you have the cover of the book.

2. Click on the Table of Contents on the left to jump to a specific chapter or section of the e-book.

Tip: You may need to click on a plus (+) sign next to the book title to see the chapters listed.

You can also use the arrow buttons under the pages that display to move forward and backward in the e-book, like flipping pages. Or, type a specific page number into the box between the arrows and click Go to jump to that page.
