This research guide has been created to help you locate library resources to use for your Humanities online courses.

Beginning your search on the library webpage for materials to use

When you are ready to start your research, go to the EFSC Library homepage to do so:

Once you're on the homepage, there are many resources to help you.

You can look for a Book by first clicking on the "Click to Search the Library" button:

Now you can enter search term(s) on the search lines and choose "Books" from the "Material Types" dropdown on the right side.

Once you have a list of results, you can limit for Print Books ("Available on Shelf") or for eBooks ("Available Online") by choosing one of those limiters on the left side:

You can choose to search for just Articles, too. 

From the Library Catalog "Advanced Search" page, you can limit to Articles in two places:
