If you can't find the book you need from our library, that's not the end of it. You can continue your search at WorldCat, the online catalog of books and other materials held by the libraries almost all over the world. You can retrieve the book you found from WorldCat through Interlibrary Loan.
Another catalog you can use is GIL, which stands for GALILEO Interconnected Libraries for the University System of Georgia.
You can check out the book you found from GIL through Interlibrary Loan.
discoverE is the main search interface for locating items in Emory's libraries and digital repositories. It also offers an Articles tab where you can search several databases at once for journal articles. Here I'll introduce you the method to locate books by titles or authors and by subjects for the resources in all formats, books, journals, databases, DVDs and other medias.
If you know a book's title or author, the search will be straight forward, you simply type them in. If you can't find them in discoverE, please go to the next column for interlibrary loan.
If you don't know any books on the topic you are interested in, you can type in the key words or subject headings, here are some examples:
You can further limit your search results by resource type, tipic, language, publication date and so on.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a borrowing service for Emory students, faculty, and staff. If a book, an article, a DVD, or any other resource that you need is not owned by Emory, the ILL team will try to get a copy from another library for you. It is a free service, but it will take about two weeks to diliever the material to you. So, start your research earlier just in case you need to use this service.
