Use Library Search to Find Books

Use Library Search's ADVANCED SEARCH to find book on your topic in the WMU Libraries. Click on the Books and Media tab.

If you already know the title or author, use the pull-down arrow to select Title or Author.

When looking for books by topic, enter you keyword(s) into the search boxes.

SEARCH TIP: If you are using a phrase in your search, be sure to put it into quotation marks, e.g. "income inequality"

SEARCH TIP: Use an asterisk * to pick up variant endings of a word, e.g. financ* with retrieve finance, finances, financial, financing, etc.
