Cognitive Science: Finding Books & eBooks

Key Ebook Collections for Cognitive Science

Search for titles in UC Library Search or search directly at the publishers' websites below. This will allow you to search the full text of their books and (if they publish journals) journal articles.

Note: you may come across titles on some of these sites that are not part of our licensed collections, in which case you can request a copy from another library or request we purchase a copy.

Suggestions for Finding Books & eBooks

1. Start with a keyword search in UC Library Search for your topic.

2. If you haven't already, sign in. Then filter results by "resource type".

3. Locate titles of interest and click on their title. View "Details" to see relevant subject headings/tags. You can search these to find similar title. Click "Virtual Browse" to see other related books nearby.

Filtering results by location.
