Step 4: Find Books & E-Books on Your Topic

Search for books and e-books using LibrarySearch, the big search box on the library homepage.

Log in with your Campus Connect credentials to view e-books or request a print book.



Why Books?

Books will help your research, especially:

  • If you are looking for an in-depth, comprehensive treatment of a topic
  • Need general information
  • Need historical context
  • Need images
  • And many more....

Keep in mind that you often don't need to read the entire book for your reseach.  Check the table of contents and the index for relevant pages.
