If you need help finding a specific title, you can email your subject librarian, or go to the Research Help Desk in room 141 of Middleton Library.

To find books, simply use the Catalog or Discovery.

The library catalog allows users to search by keyword, subject, title, author, and periodical title. This way of searching will pull up print titles but also pull up electronic resources we may have access to such as eBooks and electronic journals. This will not find periodical article titles. If you need assistance with finding a book, journal, or article, just AskUs!

Discovery is another great way of finding materials. It is like shopping for information online! Use the filters on the left hand side of the page to help focus in and narrow your results. Discovery searches multiple (not all) databases and the catalog. However, please note that not everything found in Discovery is full text accessible. This is a great place to begin researching if you are not sure what materials the library have in the collection.
