The library has a collection of both physical and electronic books. For more information on books see the Finding Books Guide.
You can search in Find It! - the main search box on the library homepage. Once you search, select Books under "material type" on the left. The other limits on the left can also help you refine your search. In addition, you can also change "search all collections" at the top to search just the library catalog, focus on those only "available in the library" and sort by relevance, date, popularity, or author. For sorting, relevance and date are probably the most useful.
You can also do an advanced search for even more control. On the library homepage, select Advanced Search. You can select books from the material type option as well as perform a more advanced search.
See the Find It! FAQ page to learn more.
