Finding Books for Background Information

Books and book chapters can be very helpful in providing both overview information and detailed background on specific topics of interest. 

Search the Library catalog to find books and journals addressing social policies. Click here for a short video on using the catalog effectively to find what you need. You can also find some helpful instructions on how to search library resources on this page.

Below are just a few examples of some of the many books available at the University of Michigan Library, either in print or online. If you do not find what you need in our Library, we may be able to get it for you through our Document Delivery service, which you can use for scans or to borrow material not available at U-M Libraries. Contact your librarian for assistance at any time.
