Do a new search for material on your topic. This time, try a subject search for the subject/descriptor heading that looked promising.

Do you prefer electronic access to books?
BGSU has access to thousands of electronic books via multiple e-book collections. Most e-books are accessible via the BGSU Libraries catalog, but not all.

To access most e-books from off-campus, you will need to authenticate with your BGSU username & password.

If you are using these e-books off-campus, you will need to authenticate with your email username and password.
