Scholarly Books in UofT Libraries

Books can provide an overview of a topic and give you an idea of academic terminology, key researchers and wider context of a topic. 

Visit the UofT Libraries Website onesearch.library.utoronto.ca to launch your search. 

  • Keep in mind that UofT Libraries also contains books that aren't scholarly research (i.e., novels, memoirs).
  • Look for University Presses or that the author is affiliated with academic institutions / research organizations.
