Geosciences Subject Guide

This guide will get you started with basic research on the geosciences.

Google Books Search

Another way to search for books.  Google Books offers some full-text books (as PDFs) and excerpts of others.  Many of the full-text books are in the public domain, no longer under copyright, and tend to be older.

Google Books is great, but it's not as good as the library!  Don't expect miracles!

Search For Books

Searching for books at the library is easy!

To search for books in the library at Trinity, it's best to use the Library Catalog.

It's also possible to search for books at other libraries using Worldcat.
After doing a search, look along the left-hand side of the page for options to refine and limit your results (if necessary).
Once you've found a good book, click on the title to get the full record.

To find out if the book is available at Trinity, or other libraries close by,
type the ZIP Code (78212) into the box labeled "Enter Location Information:".

Books from other libraries can be picked up in person or delivered to Trinity using Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
Use the link at the bottom of the page to access Trinity's ILL system.
ILL takes time! Plan ahead and do your research early!
