You can find books in Summon by typing in a known title, author, or topic, then using the limiters next to your search results to narrow your results to just books.
The BGSU Library Catalog can also be used to find books. This is sometimes a better way to search for books by topic, because
Keyword searches are a good way to start, but subject searches can be more specific. Try choosing "subject" from the drop-down menu in the catalog or a database and searching for some of these suggested subject terms.
To identify the subjects used to describe a book (or an article, if you are using a database), look for the "subjects" in the full record.
