High School Classes: 2. Find books

This guide is created for classes who are attending library instruction sessions at the University of Calgary

Finding books at the library

If you want to find books on a topic (you do not have a specific book in mind), type in your keywords in the big box search on the library homepageThe library owns both e-books and print books. Make sure to click "See all results" at the bottom of the list.

As a TAL user, you may not be able to access some e-books (since they are restricted to University of Calgary staff and student use). Books at the High Density Library are off site, and you'll need to place a request for them and come back to pick them up. You might want to focus on print books that are held at an on-campus library and checked in.
