Using QuickSearch to Find Books and eBooks

Gumberg Library has many print books and eBooks related to Political Science. Searching QuickSearch with keywords (e.g. conflict resolution, peace-building, or international relations) will return results for both print books, journal articles, newspaper articles etc.  Limit your search to books and e-books by clicking the check boxes next to books and e-books on the left panel of your results page.  

Quicksearch Catalog



The QuickSearch bar is available on the Gumberg home page. This search bar will automatically perform a search in CatalogPlus, which means it will find print books, electronic books, periodical articles, DVDs, CDs, and other sorts of materials. It is a good starting point for a general search, but this type of search has limitations when looking for very specific materials.
