The first place to check for books on your topic is the UR Library Catalog. Here are some quick tips for effective catalog searches:
If UR does not own a book that you need for your research, use Interlibrary Loan to request it from another library. Depending on how long it takes for the loaning library to fill the request, you should allow 2-3 weeks for your book to arrive. You will be notified through email when the book arrives and you can then pick it up at the Main Service Desk at Boatwright.
