There are many databases you can use to find books on your topic. Quick Search includes books that the library owns or has access to, so when you search it you can tell if we own the book you want. There are other places to look for books, but those books are not necessarily books that we own. Some of those sources are listed in a separate box. Remember that Quick Search includes both print and online books that the library owns.
The library provides access to a wealth of streaming audio and visual materials that can help with teaching and learning psychology. All are included in Quick Search. Type your topic or keyword in the large Quick Search box. In the first drop-down box under the search box, change the setting to Audio Visual. If you want to look at only online materials (rather than materials on CD or DVD), after your search is complete, click on Full Text Online, right above your list of results.
If the ISU Library does not have the book you are looking for, you can use our Interlibrary Loan service. ISU students, faculty, staff, associates, Library Visitor Cardholders, and others may request a wide range of materials that are not available in the ISU Library collections, including books, journal articles, newspaper microfilm, instruction-related audio-visual materials, dissertations and theses, etc. Click on the link above, enter your NetID and iastate.edu email password, and click on New Request on the left of the login page. If you are interested in getting books, click on Loan; if you want to get an articles ISU Library does not offer, click on Copy.
