Comp 2 (Dempster): Books & Dissertations

Find Books in WorldCat


Theses and Dissertations

Theses and dissertations can be more specific in topic than published books. 

Getting Started with Books

Books are excellent sources for your research because they are able to treat topics in more depth than shorter articles.  Their disadvantage is that they take longer to become available since they must go through the book publishing process, so an event that makes news this week may not be mentioned in a book until a year from now.

ebooks and print books are largely the same in terms of content and currency. The only difference is the way they are published.
