Find Books in the RSU Library

Image of older bound volumes of Harper's MagazineSearch all books, ebooks, audibooks, and films in the Stratton Taylor Library's collection. 

Remember: when looking for physical books, many topics will be grouped together.  If you find one or two books on immigration, for example, often several other books on the topic of immigration will be in the same general area.

If you can visit the library in person, shelf-browsing is an excellent way to find books on your topic.  Below is a basic guide to Library of Congress classification for energy resources.
