  • Ring the bell at the window for help.

  • Closed weekends, holidays, & non-instructional days

Suggested Print & Electronic Scholarly Books

Remember, you don't have to read an entire book. There may be a relevant chapter you can use as a resource. Use the index, the list of important terms at the back of a book, to help you pinpoint the exact pages or page range where particular terms or concepts are mentioned.
