The Library's print and electronic holdings can be found in LibSearch. If you're looking specifically for ebooks looks for the square brackets [electronic resoure] after the title in the catalog record.
If our library does not have a book or subscribe to an article that you'd like, you can request it through Docuserve (Interlibrary Loan). You can email me directly if you'd like a book to be purchased for our collections, or use this form.
