How do I find books on my topic?

There are several fulltext online books. The fastest way to find them is to:
1. Go to the Gerstein Library's home page: www.library.utoronto.ca/gerstein/
2. Click on e-books

2. Print books
Use the library catalogue which contains entries for all the books, journals, audio-visual resources, and theses & dissertations (from the U of T) from all 40+ U of T libraries. Please note the call number, since books are shelved in call number order. To find the catalogue

What you can do in the catalogue
If you have a specific book in kind, you can search by title or author.
Or, you can search for books on a subject:

  • use any field to search for records containing your search words in any one field such as title or author or subject
  • use subject to search for records containing your search words in the subject field
