Renewable Energy: Find Books and More

Finding Books

Library Catalog

The catalog provides access to the library holdings of Appalachian State University (books, movies, music scores, music cd's, government documents, audiobooks, and more).


Find Books, Web Sites, Media, and More

The ASU Library Catalog provides access to materials available locally as well as throughout the country, and is a good starting point for research.

The default search is AppSearch. Search it to find books, journal articles, recommended web sites, films, government publications, and other sources of information on your topic. The topics listed on the Home tab at the top of this library guide are good starting search points. Try either the Keyword or Subject Search options.

If you do not want to include journal articles in your search, select the Books & Media search option and then pick the Subject search in the drop down menu rather than the keyword search when searching for the phrases suggested on the Overview tab of this guide, as this will be more precise.

WorldCat lists the holdings of libraries around the world. You can limit the result by year, format, or other factors to tighten up your search.
