Books and eBooks are a great choice when you're new to a subject, since they can provide topic overviews and background information. They don't need to be read cover-to-cover to be useful - just check the table of contents or the index to find sections that are relevant to your interests. In eBooks, you can do a search for your topic within the book.
|Muscular system AND tissue||
Use AND between two or more terms to find materials with all the concepts. Searching for Muscular system AND tissue will only include books that have both global warming and atmosphere in their contents.
|anatomy OR physiology||
Use OR between similar concepts. Searching for anatomy ORphysiology will find books that refer to either term.
Use quotation marks ( " " ) around specific phrases such as "Respiratory System" to find the words in that specific order.
Here are a few places you can find eBooks, just remember that you will have to login with your myNOVA username and password (the same ones you use to access Blackboard, student email, etc.). More information on downloading eBooks.
