Book search tips: 

  • If you don't see a perfect book for your research topic, try a slightly broader search.  When you find a broader ebook that looks like a good match,  search inside it for more specific keywords.  You may find a perfect chapter!
  • If you're looking for a specific book title, use the title search in the book catalog.   Or, in Summon, put quotation marks around the title (example:  "Common Spiders of North America").
