Library Research Guide
Use Search It to find books owned by K-State Libraries.
Enter title, author, or keywords in the Search It box on the Libraries home page.
Click the K-State Libraries only tab on the search results page to only see items owned by K-State.
If we own the title, Search it will tell you if it is available and where to find it. If your book shows as not available (either due to the Hale fire or because someone else has it checked out), follow the link "Click to request." This allows you to request a copy through interlibrary loan; we'll ask another library to loan us their copy for you.
To find books about a work or an author, instead of a copy of the original work try:
2. Select the K-State Libraries only collection
3. Using the drop down options, change Any to Subject
4. Enter the work title or author's name in the search box
WorldCat does not search the full text of a book, just information about the book.
Use broad search terms like the author, title of the work, or genre.
If you need to focus your search results, add terms like: criticism or interpretation or broad themes like: love, religion, gender, war.
