While scientists primarily use journal articles when researching a specific scientific topic, they do still use books when looking at larger-picture issues, background information, or trends!
In order to find books on any desired topic, you can use the search box below. Search in SU Libraries, all UM System Libraries, or libraries worldwide. Most of the books that you find owned by another University of Maryland System school can be ordered - for free! - and delivered to the SU Library for your use. Email me and I can show you how to request these books.
