Answer

When you do a search with Scout, the results will include print books, electronic books, journals, articles, images, and more. If you only want to find print books, you'll need to use the Catalog Only and Source Type: Books limiters on the left side of the page to narrow your results.

Because of the way items in our collection are cataloged, you will still see some eBooks and Government Documents in the results list. To further narrow the results, you can use the Location limiter to specify a particular library.

Catalog Only, Books, and Location limiters

Please let us know if you need help finding books with Scout or locating them in the library.
