Answer

WorldCat, COM Library's book catalog, is useful for this purpose as it can search not just COM Library's holdings, but the holdings of thousands of other libraries around the world.  Follow the link below to WorldCat and search for the title of the eBook you found.  If it is not found in our Library, click on the drop-down menu below the search menu and select "Libraries Worldwide".  Find the book's title from the search results and click on it.  Then, in the item record, select Worldwide libraries that own this item to see if any other nearby libraries have it.  If they do, you could acquire the book either through Interlibrary Loan or the TexShare program, both of which you can get more information about through the Find & Get Items from Other Libraries guide below.
