HIST 4972W - War and Society: Books

Finding Books

  • In Discover@MU (the blue box on the library homepage) you can limit search results to UM Books and use a multi-line search after you do an initial one-line search.
  • We will fetch your books, but if you find books yourself, you may find more books.
  • Expand book search to MOBIUS for more books that can be sent to you at MU.
  • You can only use ebooks if they have an MU online access link.
  • Always check the book's location, note its call number, and check that it is not checked out.
