Books & Videos

Books are great for providing in-depth information about all aspects of your topics. This is a great place to find A LOT of information on your topic in just one resource. Remember that you do not have to read the whole book; just use the index to find the relevant pages for the information you are trying to find.

Video documentaries engage researchers in a visual perspective on a topic. The library has numerous DVDs in its in-house collection as well as thousands of titles available in three streaming video collections.  You can view the streaming videos in the library or off-campus using your computer or smart devices. 

Use the search box to the right to type in your topic keyword and search.  You can also find this search box on our library homepage.  Once the catalog is open with your results, refine, capture by saving the link or checking out the book with your student ID, and finally, be sure to enter in the citation information into Noodletools or another citing tool.
