Research in the Library: Books

Finding Books



Use OneSearch to search across all library resources.  Narrow your results to books by using the options in the "Refine my Results" bar on the left.

In the "Availability" section, select "Available in Print."  Your results will now show only print books available at both the Main Campus and East Campus libraries.

The video below will cover how to find both books and electronic books using OneSearch.
