Finding Books

Search the catalog for books. You can use specific keywords as well as subject headings (look for Subjects in the left hand bar on the results screen or in the catalog record).

WorldCat searches the holdings of several libraries in the United States as well as many libraries abroad. It is the world's most comprehensive bibliography with bibliographic records representing information spanning 4,000 years.

Tips on Searching for Books

DiscoverE is Emory's main search tool to find print books and e-books, journals, videos, and other materials.  

Under the "Libraries" tab in on the library homepage, click on discoverE to do a simple search: 

  1. Type in your keywords.
  2. When you get some results, use "Refine My Results" on the left to narrow your search by author, item type, date, library, and more.
  3. Once you find a relevant book, click on the entry in discoverE.  Look to see how the book is classified by subject.  When you click on the subject link, you will see other items categorized under that subject heading.  You can also click on the author's name to see more materials by the same writer. 

Remember, you can always Ask a librarian for help! You can also consult the discoverE help page for further information.
