Library Research Guide
Note that Search It offers useful filters for your results — located on the left side of the results page.
Search It has some awareness of items available in other libraries. If you limit your Material Type to Books, but search the Books, articles + more tab, then you will find some books not owned by K-State Libraries. The library can try to get these for you for free by borrowing from another library.
