Expanding your research with books
We have 25,000 print titles in our library, and more than 160,000 eBooks. Utilizing print books and eBooks can help you gain a deeper understanding of your topic, as well as being introduced to the vocabulary used for that subject, which can be used to formulate search terms used to search for articles. Whether you choose print or online, it's really your reading choice. But note that (1) there are different titles in each collection so there is value in using both and (2) there are limits to downloading and printing eBook content.
eBooks are available through our eBrary search engine. You can also search our main catalog, but it will require a few extra steps to limit the results to eBooks only.
