Discovery Guide

Book Search - Limiting your search to books

By default, Discovery returns a variety of formats--books, articles, videos, etc. If you are only interested in books, try the following:

1. Search for your topic.

2. From your search results page, check off Book on the left-hand side. You can also specify whether you want to search for print books, eBooks or both.

Accessing ebooks and print books

View eBook links are displayed for Wilmington University-subscribed eBooks and open access eBooks. Clicking on the View eBook link takes you directly to the eBook. Print books will display a shelf location such as RT89.5 .T62 2017. This is the location of the book on the shelf in the Library.

If Wilmington University Library does not own the book you need, you have the option to request the book by clicking on Request Item Through Interlibrary Loan.  Another option is to place a hold on items from participating libraries in the Delaware Library Catalog. More details on your Delaware Library Catalog account and this process can be found here. Additional details on using Interlibrary Loan can be found here.
