English 101 (ENG 101): English Composition I: Find A Book

Finding Books

Books are good authoritative sources, and contain more comprehensive information about a given topic than an author has time for in an article. Use the tutorial below to get an idea of how to find a book, and a few tricks to use while doing so. You may then use the search widgets below to locate books here, and in other libraries around Missouri. If you have any questions, please contact a librarian by coming in to the library, or using the chat, text, and email tools to the right.

Search Books

Archway contains the collection of Jefferson College Library. Start your search here. You can find ebooks, and those books that are available at one of the Jefferson College campuses by searching here.

If you can't find what you are looking for in Archway, search MOBIUS to simultaneously look at the collections of academic and public libraries all across the state of Missouri. Recently, MOBIUS has added libraries from Oklahoma, Colorado, and Arkansas as well. If you order a book through MOBIUS (see tutorial above), it will usually arrive in 3-5 business days - so you will want to start your research early if you plan on using MOBIUS items.
