Finding Books

Find Keywords in Context Using Google Books

Thanks to Google Books' page snippets, you can search topic keywords/phrases and read them in context, giving you a more definite sense of a book's relevance to your research. Use this technique to determine which books to borrow, or to expand your working bibliography.

You can search the full text of Coates Library's ebooks in exactly this way, and then download the book section you need. For help using our ebook collection, see the Tips and Tools tab of this research guide.
