Books

For books, the easiest place to start is our PML Search on the library webpage. This tool searches almost everything we have, but you can narrow to just books or ebooks (or any other type of resource) with the limiters on the left side of your screen. 

If you find a physical book, it will have something called a call number. This call number is like an address for where the book lives on the shelf. Books at Paul Meek are arranged by subject, so you may find multiple books on your topic in the same area. We can help you find your book!
