Find Books

Click here to search for print and e-books. You can enter an author, an exact title, or subject keywords (example: oil sands enhanced recovery). E-books will show up as links you can access. In many cases you can download all or part of the book, but some publishers place restrictions on this.

If you want that book next, you can place a hold. Just click the title link to go into the full record, then look for the "place hold" button. If a grad student or faculty member has borrowed the book, the due date may not be for months, but if you place a hold, they will receive a notice asking them to return the book within two weeks.

Handy tip: You can specify where you want to pick up your holds. Gallagher Library is closest to Engineering.
