Print books or e-books are useful when you need more context or more detail than space allows in a scholarly journal article. A book might offer you a history of your topic, an in-depth case study, a collection of essays by experts in a field, and more. To find books on your topic, start your search from the library catalog, using "Advanced Search" to limit your results to books or e-books.
