Looking for a Book?

Let's say you need a book on your topic. It can even be a specific book.

Option 1

You can use the Mason Libraries search box on the the library homepage. It says to enter articles, books and more, so the results list will contain more than books. To limit your results list to book, you could select Books from the Resource Results section of the Refine your results section.

Example of Resource Results section begins

Resource Typemenu expanded

checkbox unchecked Articles
checkbox unchecked Dissertations

checkbox checked Books

Example of Resource Results section ends

Option 2

Select Advanced Search from the library homepage. You have the choice to search

  1. from the Mason Catalog if you want to find e-books and books at one of Mason's libraries or
  2. Washington Regional Library Consortium (WRLC) Catalogs to search at Mason and all the WRLC libraries.

There will be more than books, but the articles won't be listed, so you would not have to filter your results if you didn't want.
