STEM - General Research Guide: Find Books/Ebooks

UC Library Search

UC Library Search, accessible from the search box on the library's homepage, helps you locate books, articles, dissertations, films, music, maps, and other materials at the UC San Diego Library and beyond. It also contains a limited number of online journal and newspaper articles. You may search by keyword, title, and author, and filter your search to what is available online, or peer-reviewed articles. You can also place an interlibrary loan request through UC Library Search for materials at other UC campuses or libraries worldwide using your Single Sign-On credentials.

To limit your search to books:

  • Change the search from Find articles, books, & more... to UC San Diego Library Catalog, or
  • In the search results, select Books under the Resource Type filter.

UC Library Search does not include all the content to which the Library subscribes. To extend your search for articles, try a database like Web of Science or Academic Search Complete.
