Find Books

Use discoverE to find books, the titles of journals, videos, government documents, microfilm collections and other materials at the Emory libraries, including Woodruff; Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library; Goizueta Business; Pitts Theology; Woodruff Health Sciences Center; McMillan Law; Science Commons; Music and Media; and Oxford libraries.

The largest concentration of materials about Portugal are located in 2 call number ranges (DT - History and PQ Literature)

You can use the BROWSE search function get a list of all the books in these call number ranges that the Emory Libraries own.

You can also do a search by the names of authors  Saramago, Jose or Antunes, Antonio Lobo to find books by those writer.

E-books in DiscoverE

Our priority is to make DiscoverE your first stop. Finding e-books in discoverE begins when you conduct your first search. On the left-hand side of the results screen, you will be able to select  to show only on "Full Access Online" or "eBooks."  If you wish to limit a search just to ebooks, you can also use the Advanced Search and select material type: eBooks. 

 

Document Delivery/InterLibrary Loan

Electronic document delivery is available for Emory faculty, grad students, staff, and undergraduates (detailed instructions). Library staff will scan a book chapter or article in a physical volume. 

Document Delivery CAN NOT scan an entire book US Copyright law only allows 20% of a book to be scanned for "Fair Use."

-------------------------------------------------------------

Using Interlibrary Loan (ILL), you can:

  • borrow books and more from other libraries
  • get copies of articles that Emory doesn't own.

You will be notified when your materials arrive (most materials are obtained within 2 weeks).
