Finding Sources

This guide is a general introduction to finding different types of sources available at Jennings Library, including books, scholarly and newspaper articles, music and videos, databases, and statistics.

How do I find a book at Jennings Library?

To find a book at Jennings Library, use the Books & Ebooks tab on the search box on this page. It's the same search box that's on the library homepage.

Here's what you should know about this book search:

  • It searches our print collections and our ebook collections. 
    • Use the filters in the search results if you want to see only print books or only ebooks.
  • If you are looking for a specific book, start by searching for the title of that book. 
  • If you are searching by subject, you can use the filters in the search results to narrow down what you're looking for. 
    • Do not use the "Full Text" filter! This is just for articles, and will confuse your search for books. 

If you are looking for a book in a specific ebook collection, see the list of ebook databases on this page (which are also on the A-Z Database List). 

Ebook Collections

Course Reserves

The library has some books that are assigned for some classes. This collection is far from exhaustive. 

Assigned books are available through Course Reserves. Use the link below to look up your course and see if the books are in the library. 

Course Reserves are either print books or ebooks. Print books on reserve can be checked out for 2 hours at a time for in-library use. This is so many people in your class can use them!
