Search for books and ebooks on the Library Search It will tell you what we have in stock and where to find it.
Sometimes there may only be a chapter on a specific topic rather than a whole book. To find those, you will need to use one of our ebook databases which allow you to search through the whole text of a book. We have several ebook collections but a good place to start would be ebrary.

Journals and Articles

If you have a reference for a particular journal article, or if you want to find out if we take a particular journal title, use the Journal Finder. 

If the Library does not have the journal article you want, you can request a copy from the Inter-Library Loan Service.
