In addition to being useful resources themselves, books (print and electronic) can help you to get overviews on broad topics and to identify citations to related sources (among other things).
Get access to Fairfield-owned ebooks by logging in with your NetID and password. If you find relevant hardcopy books, you can request that a relevant chapter(s) be scanned and delivered to your email address using the Library's Scan & Deliver service.
You will find many books in WorldCat not owned by Fairfield, but you can still request book chapters and articles from these books by using interlibrary services. Log in using your NetID and password.

Or Subject Search (good for seeing all the research on a specific author or literary work). Some examples:
(To find more subject headings, look on the catalog records of relevant books or limit your searches to the subject field.)
