In the UA Libraries Catalog, use a "Keyword" search to find relevant books. If you know the title, select the "Title" tab, then enter the beginning of the title. You can also try a "Subject" search to locate appropriate subject headings. Select the heading to retrieve a list of books from the catalog.
Other places to look for books include ebrary books, OhioLINK, and WorldCat. If the item you need is not available in the UA Library Catalog or through OhioLINK, request the item through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) System.
Finding Theses, Dissertations, and Papers
Much research is never published in a journal or book. This research is often difficult to find using article databases and library catalogs. Use the Electronic Theses and Dissertations Center (OhioLINK), Proquest Dissertations & Theses, and Papers First to find more research on your topic. Check the UA Libraries Catalog for the title of the item you would like to locate. If it is not available, request the item through ILL.
You may find assistance with all of the above at the User Support Services desk on the first floor of Bierce Library. Phone: 330-972-8161
