Ebsco is one of the providers of eBook content for our Library, and this eBook content includes reference book content that may show up in Summon as a "book", even when the record represents only a small portion of said book. The explanation Ebsco provided is as follows:

"Great Neck content is created and processed at the article level. In some cases, many articles may be grouped into one title (in which case you will see a list of chapters underneath the one record in the Ebsco database), though in most cases, one article will represent a single title. In order for this reference content to appear in the correct grouping in the database result list, these records were classified with a publication type of 'Reference Book' or 'Book.' This classification assures that this reference content is grouped with other licensed reference content, including encyclopedic content."
