Tips for Finding Books and Book Chapters

  1. When looking for books and book chapters
    1. First, search Libraries Search which will show what UMN Libraries have.
    2. If not found, then search WorldCat which includes materials held at other libraries. Click on "Request via Interlibrary Loan" to make a request.
  2. What is included in Libraries Search?  Libraries Search includes print books, eBooks, DVDs, journals, and some articles but NOT all. 
  3. With Advanced Search, you can limit results to a specific languge, date range and more. 
  4. How do I find eBooks? Conduct a search and use the "Books" and "Available Online" filters on the right-side to limit to these formats.
  5. If you can't find a book chapter, you can submit a book chapter request via interlibrary loan. You'll get a PDF scan usually within a week. This is a look quicker than requesting the whole book. 
  6. You can request digital delivery scans of parts of books in UMN Collections. To do so fill out an interlibrary loan/digital delivery request form.
