Finding Books

Search Strategies:
  • Use only a few keywords to search in the beginning

 When you find a book in the Catalog that is on your topic:

  • Click on the link beneath the book for more information, often a summary or table of contents, to see if the book will be useful to your research. 
  • Click on the Topics listed under the book to see a list of all the books that have been tagged with that subject heading.
  • Text yourself the call number!

Now you're ready to go to the shelves to find your books.

  • Books are on the second floor of the library
  • When you find a book on the shelf that seems useful to your topic, look around it for other possible resources.
