Every book has its time and place; when it comes to non-fiction works, here a couple varieties you may encounter:
Reference texts are great choices for getting a better feel for a topic (similar to using Google or Wikipedia to get started), but they won't be as effective as research texts when it comes to writing a paper and supporting your claim, argument, statement, etc.
Note: Just because a text is not in the "Reference Collection" of the library does not mean it isn't a "reference text". Some are labeled as such (with a REF sticker), but something closer to a textbook will not likely carry this label.
Refer to the General Search Strategies page for brainstorming search terms. Keep your search broad to begin with (1-3 words that describe your topic). Use the SU Libraries Quick Search below (also located on the SU Libraries home page).
Refer to the Locate Books details further down this page to determine where certain collections (Reference, Ready Reference, Folio Books, etc.) are located in the library.
If you need help accessing/downloading an eBook, refer to this page or contact your librarian.
Most eBooks are searchable through the SU Libraries Quick Search, just as with our print collection. Filter results by Format (under Book -> eBook) on the left side of the results page.
Use the Find It button or one of the database links listed underneath the Find It button to find full-text access
