Where to Look for Books

 "There is fantastic information in books. Often when I do a search, what is in a book is miles ahead of what I find on a Web site." —Sergey Brin (Google co-founder)

Search the UT library catalog to find books, journals, DVDs, maps and more.  For Maymester work, we think that you will be most interested in ebooks.

  • Start with a keyword search to find a book on your topic.
  • When you find a good title, follow the subject headings for more books on the topic.
  • Use the location field to limit the results to: -electronic resources.
  • If you are able to identify a needed portion of a print book, you can request a scan of a print book up to 50 pages by using the green Get A Scan button Get A ScanThis option may take a few days.

A helpful tool for searching book content is:

Google Books searches the contents of books to help find details that would usually be hidden.  Sometimes the excerpt will be sufficient to supply needed information.  Sometimes the University Libraries will have a copy of the book and you can check for it in the library catalog --- hoping for an ebook.
