Searching for Book Materials

Books on this topic can be located using an increasingly broad search process.

The first place to start your search  is the SXU Only catalog, which contains materials available at/from our libvrary location. 

The next expanded collection is composed of materials found within our I-Share catalog ... a consortium of 86 state libraries. Materials can usually be delivered within two business days.

To search beyond these materials, consider using the WorldCat catalog of over 6,000 libraries. Delivery can take between four days and two weeks, depending upon the location of the holding library.


Another approach is to search in large electronic book collections that are created by national projects. Our Ebook page will direct you to many of these tools. Some materials are freely available, but other titles of interest may require you to request paper copies through our consortial partners (see above).


Finally, you may be interested in viewing our newly purchased book titles.
