General Library Search: Good for Books

Here's how to optimize your search to find books in the Augsburg library:

  • Notice that Augsburg Only is already checked — that's good
  • Check Book
  • After you've entered your search terms and hit the magnifying-glass icon, look for the “facets” in the left-hand column
  • Note you can choose between Print Book and Ebook
  • And you can limit by Topic and Year
  • For ebook-reading tips, check out the Access an Ebook library guide

To enter the title and author separately for a known item, you can also specify the Augsburg and Book options ahead of time in the Advanced Search — click on the arrow next to Limit your search.
