Finding books and ebooks
The library's collection includes both print and electronic books (eBooks). Each can be found using the online catalog, but only eBooks can be accessed and read online. You can quickly evaluate the contents of a book by reading the introduction, the table of contents, and the index. Since a book is a work on a single topic, it may be longer and more in-depth than a typical journal article.

Getting books from other libraries

- WILL: Walk-in Interlibrary Loan program to visit and borrow books from participating Massachusetts Public Higher Education (MPHE) member libraries.
- Academic and Research Collaborative (ARC): Get an ARC card at the library's main desk to visit and borrow books from these Worcester Area ARC member libraries.
