This page will help you use Milner's catalog to find books and e-books. Books can be helpful for understanding the basic facts of a situation or learning the history and background information on your topic. Print and electronic materials are available through Milner's catalog.

Video Walkthrough

The first three minutes of this video shows the basics of how to use Milner's catalog to find and access books. The rest of it discusses how to use Milner's Article Search.

Finding E-Books

Many of you may prefer or require e-books to print material for this project. You can limit to just books available electronically in the catalog. To do so, first create a search string for the chosen topic. Make sure you are searching within the Library Catalog, and looking for Books.
