Finding books

Books can offer a chance to learn about a subject in-depth. Edited books can provide a chapter or chapters related to your topic. In addition to print books, the UO Libraries offers many ebooks that can be accessed remotely by current UO students and faculty. 


To search: 

If you want only books/videos/music in the UO Libraries system, change the search scope to "UO Libraries." 


If you want books/videos/music in the UO Libraries system and the consortium of 37 colleges and universities in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, select "UO + Summit." You can place a request for books within Summit using LibrarySearch. Requests generally arrive within 3-5 days.  


If you want to broaden your search even further, you have a couple options. If the item you're looking doesn't come up in your initial search, you can click on "expand your search" to see more results for items that you can request from other libraries.

You can also use WorldCat to search beyond the UO Libraries and the consortium. These materials are requested through Interlibrary Loan and may come from any library. Books and AV items arrive within an average of 10 days. There is a link to WorldCat on the Libraries' homepage

You can limit your search results by resource type using the search filters, usually on the left-side of the screen (or click on the filter icon if you are on a mobile device). Click on "Print books" and "eBooks" to limit your results to both types of books.
