Spring 2016, G. Lehring

Finding Books

Smith College LibrariesLook for books in the Five College Library Catalog. Ask or look for signs for call number locations.

Ebooks from EBL, JSTOR, ebrary and others are in the catalog and Discover.  Links to Google Books help you check the contents of printed books. For example, search "American Indian" or "native American" in Child welfare for the twenty-first century: a handbook of practices, policies, and programs.

Use the Request Item button in the catalog to request books from the other Five Colleges.


WorldCatNo luck? Try looking in WorldCat under the same subjects. Use Interlibrary Loan to request books not in the Five Colleges. Allow at least two weeks for materials coming by mail.
