How do I find Books?

If you are searching for a specific book, try the catalogs in this list. If you don't find it from one catalog, try the next catalog in the list.

  1. UA Libraries Catalog
  2. OhioLINK Catalog (button in UA Libraries Catalog)
  3. Search Ohio Catalog (button in OhioLINK Catalog)
  4. Interlibrary loan

Sometimes it is convenient to search electronic books directly particularly when looking for quick facts or code syntax. Refer to the electronic book sources in this section or the previous section, Databases to Find Aritcles, Books and More. Use the descriptions to find the databases that contain electronic books that are most closely related to your topic. Keep in mind that not all books will be available for download. It depends on the database and the library's subscriptions.
