To find books and government documents in USA Libraries' collections, use SOUTHcat: USA Libraries' Catalog.
Subject encyclopedias and handbooks have a wealth of background information that can provide you with a strong foundation upon which to build your research.
Many of the e-books in the EBSCO (EBSCO titles are still called "NetLibrary" in SOUTHcat), ProQuest, and Springer collections can be found in the SOUTHcat catalog. Use the tips and tricks given in the SOUTHcat box above and look for "Marx Library Electronic Books" in the Location field. We also have electronic copies of some of our print books - these will show up with a note of "Title has multiple holdings" in your results list.
If the USA Libraries don't have the book or article you're looking for, you can place a request for it via Interlibrary Loan (ILL). The link below will take you to the ILL page.
