To search for books in Boatwright, use the UR Library Catalog . When dealing with a topic that can be used in many fields it is best to add a second word that describes your area of interest. for example, "self" and "psychology". Start with a keyword search and when you have found one or two relevant books, examine their subjects headings to help guide further searching, or use terms from the table of subject headings to the left. Remember that books are generally on broad topics and that you are not searching the full text, only the titles, subject headings, and--if you're lucky--the table of contents.
If you have fairly specific terms to describe your topic, Onesearch can be useful, especially because it will search the full text of the electronic books. But use the catalog first; it's much more managable.
Here are a few general categories within which many potential topics will be included.
You can also find relevant books by using Worldcat, a large national catalog of books; by searching Google Books or Google Scholar; and by searching our Ebsco and Ebrary e-book databases.
