Books could be scholarly or popular.
Books gather lots of research together and make connections--like the perfect search results page.
You don't have to read the whole thing--you can read the intro (to get an overview) or a chapter or two.
Search for ebooks, books, DVDs, CDs, print journals, scores, and other physical items in the library.
1. Use the search box in the middle of the library homepage OR the embedded search box to the right. To see ONLY books, click on "Books, Media, and More" after you see your search results. Too exclude e-books and anything already checked out, next click "Available in Library." Note the Availability, Location, and Call Number. Find on the shelf!
2. Or, go directly to "Advanced Search" (on both the homepage and on the OneSearch results interface) and choose to get only "Books" in your results (or DVDs, or whatever).
3. Keep those keywords general--OneSearch can't actually search inside the whole book, just the title and chapter headings.
4. The date of the book matters more or less depending on your topic.
Option 1: WorldCat (libraries around the world--more options)
Option 2: OneSearch searching FastTrac (regional libraries)
