To find books, you can search WorldCat Discovery (the search box on the library home page). While the majority of our collection is currently packed away (other than science and music books), you might want to limit to e-books - this FAQ will cover that best

If you need to find articles, you can start with one of the following methods:

  • Use the library's WorldCat Discovery search box on the library home page & enter keywords related to your question. You can use the "Format" limit on the left to narrow down to articles. Tip: if you don't see the full-text, look for a "Request Item" button, and we'll try to get a digital copy of it from another library through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
  • Use one of our many databases by starting on the https://libguides.depauw.edu/az.php.
    • If you're not sure where to start, try the FIRST one on the A-Z list, Academic Search Complete. It's great for almost any topic you might be looking for.
    • Beyond that, you can limit to databases that are good for a specific discipline by using the "Subject" filter at the top of the page:
