Books at Albright & Other Libraries

Use CataLION (Albright's online catalog) to identify books and videos on your topic. The catalog includes records for both print and electronic books. For print books, if you are NOT taking a class on the Reading campus, fill out an interlibrary loan form. For ebooks, click on the link and use your network username and password to login when prompted.

Hint: Search specific names such as Shining Path or Rigoberta Menchu phrases such as women revolutionaries. Also consider typing the word revolution followed by the name of the country, e.g., revolution haiti

Another source for locating books is a database called WorldCat. This is a catalog for thousands of libraries. Use this if you cannot find enough books at Albright.

Library staff will do everything possible to get your materials to you in a timely fashion. Click the Getting Your Materials tab above for intructions.
