ECON 101-6: Economics and Science (Habermalz): Finding Books

NUsearch - Books & More

NUsearch iconNUsearch is the library's tool for finding books, journals, videos, images, and so much more (both physical and electronic) in our collection.

Search Strategy

Probably the best way to approach searching for books in NUsearch is to start with a keyword search.

  • Enter your search terms, using words you're familiar with that describe your topic.
  • Scan through the results.
  • When you find an book that is relevant to your topic, explore the details of the book, including the author, table of contents and publisher.
  • Pay special attention to the subject headings. Clicking on these will call up a list of other books that deal with similar topics.

Can't Find It @ NUL?

UBorrow allows you to search for and request an item in real time from nearby CIC institutions with a guaranteed 12-week loan if NUL does not own it or it is currently checked out.

For other materials that are not available via Northwestern, be sure to search WorldCat. You can submit an interlibrary loan request to have a copy of the item sent here.

Feel free to suggest a purchase, too!
