Finding Book & eBooks

Changes to Library services during the COVID-19 service disruption.

Use the CATALOGUE to find books, government documents, conference proceedings, and journals.  Only the titles of journals are included in the catalogue: use the databases to search for individual article titles.

If you know the title of the item you seek, perform a TITLE search.

If you know the author, perform an AUTHOR search.  Enter the author's name with the surname first.

Otherwise, try a KEYWORD search. 
    Search Tips:
Use boolean operators AND/OR to create a relevant search statement.
Use the truncation symbol * when you want to allow for several spellings or variations on a word.
When using more than one operator, use parentheses to group words.

                 Example: canad* and (trade or commerce) and china


       Scroll down to see the subject headings.

                  Example    Canada - foreign economic relations - China

For more information, consult the keyword search help in the catalogue.


eBooks can be found in the catalogue by author, title, subject and keyword searching. 
Do a search and then limit your search to retreive only ebooks by using the drop down menu:
