Find Books (and other research materials)

Want to find books, documentaries, government information, and other research on your topic? Use Catalog Search to find items owned by the U-M Library. You can see an example search below.

Find Articles

Looking for articles? Try Articles Search to find scholarly articles on any topic. You can see an example search below. Notice that this search is narrower than the search for books. Because articles tend to be written on more specific topics, you'll need to think carefully about how to narrow down your topic and translate it into keywords for searching.
