Search the Library Catalogue to find relevant books and other material in the collection. Search by title or subject, and remember to put phrases between "quotation marks".

On the left hand side of the catalogue, you can refine your search to show, books, full text, or select a publication date range. Add, remove or change keywords to find the information relevant to you.
