After locating the book in EBSCO, click on the eBook Full Text link to open the book.

To the right, there is a series of icons you can use for various functions. The first one looks like a magnifying glass, and when you put your mouse over it, the phrase "Search within this eBook" will display

In the Search box, enter what you can recall of the phrase you are trying to find.  Usually two or three 'unusual' words will be sufficient.  Don't use very common words, e.g.'united' 'a' 'an' 'the' 'and' 'you', 'your', unless necessary.  This will produce a list of phrases with those words in the phrase.  The number of phrases will be listed at the top of the book, labeled 'Keyword Matches'.  

This is also helpful when searching an eBook for specific information.
