Books & eBooks

For information on how to search for, access, and use eBooks, please check out our comprehensive Using eBooks tutorial. Books can be a great way to take a deep dive into a topic, as they topically have a broader scope than scholarly journal articles. Scholarly journal articles are often research based, and as such have very focused research questions. For example, if your topic is Medicare, an article may look at rehospitalization rates among African American Medicare recipients. A book, however, may cover this as well as a number of other aspects of the overall topic of Medicare.

Books (as well as scholarly journal articles) will often also contain long lists of references that you can use to obtain other potentially useful sources. While reading the book, keep an eye out for useful information. When you find some, look for a corresponding in-text citation. The in-text citation points to an entry on the reference page with the information you can use to track down the source. For a tutorial on how to locate a specific journal article, please check out this guide.
