More Info

Did you know?

We have more than 300,000 volumes in Preston Library.

If we don't have what you're looking for then we can inter-library loan (ILL) it for you! 

Why use books?

Books provide in-depth information on broad subject areas. Researchers use them when they need:

  • Historical context or comprehensive background information for their subject area
  • Synthesis and analysis of events and information

Note: Often a chapter or two, rather than the entire book, are all that you may need.
