Books Beyond the TriCo Libraries
Google Books (unlike Tripod) generally lets you search within the full text of the book. To actually read the full book, check Tripod to see if you can get it through the library.
If it's not available from the TriCo Libraries, it's easy to make an EZBorrow or Interlibrary Loan request using the links below. It can take anywhere from 3 business days to 2 weeks for an item to arrive, so plan accordingly! EZBorrow is generally faster than Interlibrary Loan.

Click on the link that matches the level of specificity you need.

- Consult the book's bibliography and use Tripod and library databases to track down some of the sources that author cited.
- Try searching for the book title in Google Scholar and see which other books and articles have cited this book - they might be more recent sources on your topic.
