How to Find Books, Magazine and Journal Articles, and Other Documents
Follow this link to a tutorial for searching Bell Library's online catalog, Portal.
Use the database,eBooks, to find electronic books.
WorldCat, the largest online catalog in the world, contains information on millions of resources owned by thousands of libraries throughout the world. It can help you locate materials owned by many Texas libraries. It can also help identify quality Internet/Web resources. Do this by limiting searches to Internet Resources in the Advanced Search mode on WorldCat.
Dissertations and Theses , the database, provides online access to the full text of dissertations written throughout the country from 1997 to the present. One may also search this database to find citations or references to dissertations written from 1861 to the present.
When in the Find Journals List, type the journal title into the Find box. This list is the key to the journals Bell Library owns or to which it has access electronically.
If, after checking this list, you are still unable to find the needed journals, use the Interlibrary Loan Service.
If you have not used this service before, be sure to follow the link for First Time Users. The library will try to obtain a copy of the needed article or document from another source. Note: If you live outside the Corpus Christi metropolitan area and you need books or other printed documents, Interlibrary Loan will mail these items to you first class at no cost to you. You will then be asked to return the items to the library and assume the return mail cost.
