Getting Started

Options for getting started with Library resources.

Books provide an excellent overview of a topic and are a great resource when starting an assignment.  Refer to any Reading Lists you may have been directed to or use the Library Catalogue to search for topics.

If we don't have a book you're interested in, we may be able to obtain it via Interlibrary Loan.


For a look at an ebook package (in this case Ebook Central) in a bit more detail, see this short video.

To find print books:

  • Search the Library Catalogue (second search box on the page)
  • For each book, note the floor, number and author code: FIRST FLOOR 658.00721 BRY 
  • Technology books can be found in many places in the Library, use the Locate a Book search tool (at the bottom of this page) with the shelfmark for the book which you can find on the catalogue.
  • This web page gives information on borrowing from the Library.

To find ebooks:
