Library and Information Studies - GSLIS

Graduate School of Library and Information Studies Guide

Where to start your book search

The Robert L. Carothers Library and Learning Commons contains a wide variety of books to support your course work in GSLIS. Whether you're exploring issues in reference, technology, cataloging, management, ethics, archives, or information literacy, the library offers both print and electronic resources to meet your needs. 

Search the catalog by keyword, subject, author or title. Identify the items you need and follow the Library of Congress call number to the proper locations. 

Other places to search for books

Google Books and WorldCat are also important resources for book searching.

Keyword vs. subject searching: Which is best?

Citation Managers

RefWorks, Mendeley, and Zotero are reference managers with some bonus features. Mendeley and Zotero are "freemium" products, meaning you get a certain amount of storage for free, but once you hit the limit (1 GB for Mendeley and 300 MB for Zotero), you will need to pay for additional storage.
