Books, media, etc. - what are they?

These are equivalent to what you would find on the shelf in a library.

  • Books on a single topic by one (or two or three...) authors.
  • Books which are edited volumes where each chapter is written by a different expert.
  • Audio-visual material such as DVDs, videos, CDs, etc.
  • Scores and librettos.

See the Articles tab for locating journals, magazines and newspapers.

Books, Media, etc. - how to search for them

  1. Try a title or keyword search on your topic.
  2. Look at several relevant records from the results list and note words and phrases from the "subject" area.
  3. Go back to the search screen and search BY SUBJECT using the words you identified in step 2.
  4. When you find something useful, either copy down the call number and location (if it is in our library) or submit an interlibrary loan
