Use Bibliographies

Works Identified by Experts

Reference sources may contain citations to other publications or  primary sources.  Look under the Background Information tab. Then search for them in the UTL catalogue.

Bibliographies in scholarly books often list additional sources consulted on a topic. Look at the list of references in your textbook and assigned course readings

Footnotes in books and journal articles refer to the sources used by the author to support the discussion in the publication. Search for them in the UTL catalogue. If the journal article doesn't have a link use the 'How to find a Know Journal Article' video at the end of this page.

SEE TIPS FOR SEARCHING FOR BOOKS AND JOURNAL ARTICLES BELOW

Searching for Books

Maximize the resources held at the University by exploring the information in the full record for the item, just click on the title.

Remember to use the delivery service to bring materials to UTM.

Search by the Title of the book, using the "TITLE" field.

If you wish to search for a TOPIC, use the "Anywhere" field. The subject field uses 'official subject headings' and you may not be familiar with them.

YOU WILL ALSO FIND PRINT VERSIONS OF BOOKS, YOU MAY REQUEST THESE ITEMS FROM OTHER LIBRARIES.

IF THE UTM LIBRARY COPY IS SIGNED OUT YOU MAY REQUEST THE BOOK FROM ANOTHER LOCATION.

LOOK AT THIS RECORD FOR A PRINT BOOK.
