Finding Books

Two tools for finding books

If you find a book that we do not own, but which is available at a number of other libraries in the United States, request it using Interlibrary Loan.

Three tips for finding books

1. Use the Advanced Search and limit your search to Format "Books". This will return both print and e-books.

2. Use relevant books to find other books on the same or related topic by exploring the book's Subject Headings.

3. Browse the shelves. Books are organized by subject, so explore the titles within a shelf or two for other relevant titles.
