You can also use QuickSearch to search for articles. QuickSearch is a single search portal that can making finding sources easier, but it is not exhaustive and sometimes you will need to consult subject-specific databases in order to find the best articles for your topic.

Finding Books

QuickSearch is the best place to start your search for either books or articles. You can limit your results to just books by clicking on "Books" (under "Resource Type."

Below you will find a video that walks you through how to use QuickSearch to find a book on a specific topic.

 

While the library's print collection is available to you through Click and Collect (for pickup at the Robeson Library or for delivery by mail), you may find it most convenient to search for electronic books. Once you have done a search in QuickSearch, you can use the gray bar on the left side of the screen to limit your results to electronic books that are available online 24/7. To do this, you will want to select "Available Online" under "Limit To."
