Keep in mind that you won't need to read the entire book. Often with scholarly books each chapter is a standalone topic, and in some cases books are collections of essays by various authors, related to a broad topic. It's always a good idea to at least skim the introduction. 

"Online"/eBooks: clicking on the title will take you to a record about the book or lead directly to the eBook. If it doesn't lead directly to the eBook and takes you to the information about the book, click on one of the "Web" links to access the eBook.

Printed books: If a particular library and call number are listed, it's a printed book (physically available from one of U of T's libraries). If so, take note of the Library and the call number, and you may be able to request it via through the curbside pickup service. Have a look at the particular library's pickup point and instructions for how to request a book for pickup here.
