Lightner Library has several collections of electronic reference books to assist you. Take a look at Gale Virtual Reference Library and EBSCO Ebooks.
To find books in Lightner Library, use our Polaris online book catalog.
The search results will show you all the titles that matched your search. You can then click on any title to see more information. The results will tell you if the book is checked out or if it is available.
Since the ASAP program is accelerated, ordering books from Lightner Library or other colleges is not the most efficient method of getting books. Interlibrary loan takes time because the books are mailed to you.
When you have a long term research project and have time to wait, use our online interlibrary loan system, ILLiad. You must register with ILLiad by creating a username and password.
Once you are registered with ILLiad, you can make requests for books and articles at your computer. You will also have the ability to track your requests online.
Please remember that interlibrary loan for books takes time ~ don't procrastinate!
