Looking for books?
Use the Connelly Library Catalog - doing a Keyword search will locate books which use that term in the titles, in chapter headings and in subject headings. The catalog record gives you floor locations and call numbers to help you locate the book. If the book is an electronic book, there will be a link to the full text.
If you look at the bibliographies at the end of the reference or e-reference resources, you may find a list of further readings. Look those books up in the catalog using a Title search.
Some other hints:
After you have done a Keyword search on your topic, look at the Subject Headings at the bottom of the record. These are the official Library of Congress headings which have been assigned to the book. By clicking on the Subject Headings you may find other works which are on the same subject. You will also get See Also references which will offer you alternative search terms.
After you click on the subject heading you are brought into the Subject Headings index where you can see alternative subject heading or the same subject heading narrowed down by a subheading:
Here is a way to search inside books. In some cases you can read the full text of the book online, but in most cases you must get the book in a library. There is no printing allowed from Google Books. You can click on the Find in Library link to see if La Salle University owns the book. If we don't have it, you can use EZ Borrow
