Introduction to Books and Ebooks

Maya Scribe

Scholarly books and book chapters are some of the best sources on history, literature, popular culture and cultural traditions and other humanities and social sciences based topics. For this reason, you will find records for books, book chapters, and dissertations as well as journal articles in many of the databases available to you at the Pollak Library and listed under Articles in this guide.

Look for books in our library using OneSearch. Books are arranged in the library by Library of Congress Call Number
