UTM195 Curiosity and Control: Voyages of Discovery to North America

Use Bibliographies

Works Identified by Experts

Reference sources may contain citations to other publications or  primary sources.  Look under the Background Information tab. For example the Oxford Bibliographies Online series has annotated bibliographies complied by scholars in the field. Identify the useful titles, 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.

SEE TIPS FOR SEARCHING FOR BOOKS AND JOURNAL ARTICLES BELOW

Searching for Books

Start at the UTM Library and use the catalogue to find books.

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.

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