Frequently Asked of Us
Check our FAQ for answers to popular library & research questions.
GEO/ENV173: The California Gold Rush
Search the library catalog at the Books & More tab to find out what books, journals, newspapers, videos, maps, CDs, music, etc., the library owns.
NOTE: There are no journal articles in the catalog!
To find a book, begin by conducting a Keyword search our your topic. Analyze your topic or research question and break it down into its key concepts, which becomes the Keyword search. Once you have found a record for an item that looks useful, click on a Subject Heading to retrieve other items with similar content.
Indexes & Article Collections
Finding Journals and Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
To determine whether or not the F&M Library owns a journal, use the Journal Finder tab on the Library's homepage. If the library does not have a journal you need, and you have at least 1 week to 10 days before your assignment is due, you can submit an Interlibrary Loan request to have the journal article acquired for you by the library. Allow 3-7 days for the article to arrive.
