Finding Books in Boatwright Library


To search for books use Books & More (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, "Pinter" and "Homecoming".

The best way to find books with criticism of a particular author is to type in the full name followed by "criticism."  For example: David Mamet criticism.
