Books are more comprehensive than articles, though are not always as current. Books can help you build a foundation of knowledge on a subject or provide multiple points of view. Reference books give you a shorter, less comprehensive summary of your topic and are a great place to start your research. Try using the CSN Libraries Book Search.
CSN Libraries Catalog: CSN Students can find eBooks and physical books through the CSN Libraries catalog by using the following link: Find Books. Searching by keyword such as "ecology" will find current holdings across our three campus library locations.
CSN Libraries InterLibrary Loan: Sometimes a book, journal volume, or other materials may not be available at CSN Libraries. In these cases, CSN Students can use CSN InterLibrary Loan. This is a free service that allows us to borrow materials from other libraries.
