Search Strategies for finding books in print
- If you don’t know a particular author or title, the best way to start the search for books is to perform a keyword search.
- You might try using AND to combine two keywords for retrieving more specific results.
- If you can’t find what you need in MBU Library Catalog click on MOBIUS Catalog on the library homepage.
- Click Request by the book title to process your request of the book.
- EBSCO eBooks

The breadth of information available through this package ensures that users will have access to information relevant to their research needs. EBSCO eBooks are also available in MBU Library Catalog.
- Ebook Central
Ebook Central is a collection of thousands of digitized titles in science, education and business that allows the user to search, browse, read the content of the item online, copy and download the needed information.
- Google Books
Google Books allows you to search within the contents of books in ways a traditional library catalog cannot. It is a good way to locate a specific chapter or reference within a book that is useful to your research. When you find a good book on your topic, be sure to check MBU Library Catalog or MOBIUS Catalog to see if a copy of it is locally available.
