Why books?

Books are a good resource to start with because they provide an overview or background information on a subject. If you don't know where to start, the library catalogs will help you locate books on your topic.

Search UCL Catalog

Books are available in the U/C Library. This search box searches for books and ebooks.


Note: You may need to log in. Your Borrower ID is your BC ID#. Your default PIN is a 4 digit code based on your birth date: MMDD. (For example, if you were born on July 04, your PIN is 0704.)

Boolean Searching

When you are searching for books/articles, you can make your searches more effective by using AND, OR, and NOT connectors. The AND, OR, and NOT connectors allow you to connect keywords and determine the relationship between them.

The most frequently used keyword connector is "AND." The "AND" connector will narrow your search results and retrieve books/articles containing all of the words it separates.

Example: You are searching for books/articles on Medicinal Plants in the United States.

The two main keywords for your search strategies are Plants and United States
