Books

Books in the ISU Library can be located with Quick Search. If you can't find a book with Quick Search, try WorldCat, a mega-catalog of thousands of libraries worldwide. Books found in WorldCat can typically be borrowed via Interlibrary Loan. You can search all of these sources by author, title, subject, and keyword. Searches will retrieve both printed and electronic books (e-books).

Looking specifically for e-books?

You can refine your Quick Search query in a variety of ways to retrieve only this format. For example, you can:

include the name of an e-book publisher (such as NetLibrary) in your search

  • marketing AND netLibrary
  • poe AND "electronic text center"

include the phrase "electronic books" in your search

  • architecture AND "electronic books"
