Search the Mirlyn catalog to find books available at the U-M Library. E-books are linked from catalog records.
BTW, catalog searches also identify journals (not articles), CDs, DVDs, videos, conference proceedings, microforms, U-M dissertations and more.
If you don't find what you need, try WorldCat to find books available at many other libraries world-wide. Books owned by U-M are identified, and it is easy to place an interlibrary loan request for the materials we don't own directly from the WorldCat record.
