If you are trying to obtain access to books that we do not have in our collection, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Options that we may explore are other online e-book collections that are currently available to you through the Internet Archive, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, and possible purchases of e-books through the library (when available).
Options for getting print materials from Atkins Library (please watch the video above for instructions):
1. Request scans of a few chapters from any of our print books
2. Work with our staff to gain access to entire books through curbside pickup (by appointment only) or mail delivery (to your home)
3. You can return materials to the book drops throughout campus or by mail. The cost of mail delivery and returns are funded by the library.
For more information, please visit the Update page on the library homepage.
Use these databases to search for journal articles, book reviews, and historiographical essays.
When you find one good book on your topic, look at the Subjects (or Subject Headings) assigned to that book in the catalog record. Below are some examples of Library of Congress subject headings that might be helpful to you.
