Library Catalogs

Use UNC's catalog to find books on your research topic.  Experiment with keyword searches to find the right resources.  If UNC does not have the book you are looking for, you can explore Duke, NC Central, and NC State's collection through the TRLN search, and request those books to be delivered in about 3 business days.  Another option is to do a Worldcat search.
