Databases Discussed in Library Session 1

Although we didn't get a chance to discuss the following databases in class, they could be worth exploring.


Books in the Library

When using SuperSearch, the easiest way to limit your search to physical books in the library is to apply the following filters:

Availability = Available in the library
Material type = Books

Click on a book's title and find the location of the book in the Locate It section of the detailed record. To locate books on the shelf, use our guide to understanding call numbers.

Below are just a few titles from our shelves that you might find useful. Books are shelved by topic, so you'll find similar books on the shelves near these.
