Locating Books

Library Search provides access to the Emory Libraries catalog, Articles+ and other search tool.

Library Search is the main search interface for locating items in Emory's libraries and digital repositories.  It also offers an Articles tab where you can search several databases at once for journal articles.  Here I'll introduce you the method to locate books by titles or authors and by subjects for the resources in all formats, books, journals, databases, DVDs and other medias.

If you know a book's title or author, the search will be straight forward, you simply type them in.  If you can't find them in Library Search, please go to the next column for interlibrary loan.

If you don't know any books on the topic you are interested in, you can type in the key words or subject headings, here are some examples:

                         Korean History

                         Korean Politics

                         Korean Democracy

                         North and South Korea

                         Korean Culture

You can further limit your search results by resource type, topic, language, publication date and so on.

Getting Books Emory Does Not Own

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a borrowing service for Emory students, faculty, and staff.  If a book, an article, a DVD, or any other resource that you need is not owned by Emory, the ILL team will try to get a copy from another library for you. It is a free service, but it will take about two weeks to diliever the material to you.  So, start your research earlier just in case you need to use this service.
