COM210: Interpersonal Communication: Finding Books/Book Chapters

Tips for book searching

To browse scholarly and popular interpersonal communication texts, try searching by subject, rather than keyword.  Use the advanced search and select "Subject" from the dropdown menu

Finding Books

Don't forget, you don't need to use the whole book. Want to use just a chapter? Let us scan it for you. Fill out this form and bring it and the book up to the front (circulation) desk and we'll scan it and email it to you.

Searching the library catalog

The library catalog contains records for where to find all of the materials we physically own in the library: books, movies, board games, etc. It also contains links to all the e-books and streaming documentaries we own. We share this catalog with libraries around the world which allows us to get print items we don't own from other libraries, but this doesn't apply to e-books.

Retrieving your book

If you found an E-book - Just click on the "access online" button from the catalog.  If you are unsure how to get to the full text check out this guide.  

If you found a print book - First check to see if it is available.  To locate it in the library you will need to know both the collection and the call number.

3. Note that to place holds, check due dates, or renew materials online, you must log in. Select "Set/Reset password" the 1st time & note that you must use your UD ID number NOT your username. See text & video instructions here. Library staff do not keep track of library catalog passwords.
