Tabs on this guide provide a few suggested sources you might find useful. Look at the call numbers. In either the reference or circulating collections, if you can find one book on a subject that interests you, its placement in the call number system means that similar books will be sitting right around it on the shelf.

The Library owns and loans books from the collections on the second floor. We also have a reference collection whose material is always on-site. The library catalog may be searched by anyone, but finding and downloading articles is typically restricted to UTM affiliates

Remember that help is available by chat, telephone, and in person at the Reference desk
