Finding Books

Search for books at UM:  

Mirlyn - the UM library catalog

  • Search for your terms and use the options on the left-hand column to refine the results.

Search for books from beyond UM:  


  • A huge catalog combining thousands of library catalogs

  • Click MGetIt to request an item via ILL or UBorrow



Note that Book Chapters are indexed in many article databases, such as Sociological Abstracts

Search the full text of e-books

Sometimes it's useful to search the full text of books; you will find more items than a simple catalog search will reveal.

Two options for searching the text of e-books:

  • Google Books search (go to the book's page in Google Books, then click Find in a Library to see if we have it at UM)

Please note: not every book is available or searchable in digital format!!  These searches are not comprehensive.
