Using discoverE to find books:
For a simple search at discoverE, it can be a key word, a title or a person's name that you intend to get. If the search result is a lot, you can use "Refine Search Results" on the left column, to narrow your search by item type, language, date and more.
You can also do an Advanced Search in discoverE. This function will allow you to combine your search with key words, authors, titles.

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.
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.
