Research Tips: Books

Browse the shelves: More books on your subject will be shelved near the one(s) you locate. It is sometimes easier to find one specific book and  search the surrounding shelves for relevant titles.

Citations: Books and ebooks require different citation information. Make sure to use the correct format when citing your sources.

Reference Books: If you find useful titles in a certain call number range check out the same range in the reference (REF) section.

ILL: If you can't find a book in our catalog it may be available through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Find out more about the process on our ILL FAQ page or ask a librarian.
