Search the online catalog for books, DVDs, e-books, audio books, etc.
When searching the library catalog, use more general search terms than you would when searching a database of journal articles. For example, do a SUBJECT search on "human services" to see the many subjects and entries listed under each.
When you find an item that looks useful, check the subject headings - you can click on them to see similar items. Also, it may be useful to click on the call number in the record. This allows you to virtually browse the titles as though you were standing in the stacks, except you'll also see any e-books in the collection.
