Finding Books

You will find hundreds of items in our catalog dealing with Shakespeare (books, videos, DVDs) and you can search our online catalog at http://portal.emich.edu/. Drop-down menus and the advanced search tab allow you to do a variety of searches.

One simple way to find what we have is to do a Subject search for Shakespeare, William.

Using the additional search boxes allows you to focus your search further. Some other subjects that you could search along with Shakespeare, William include:

Adaptations,

or Tragedies.

Sometimes all circulating items on your topic have been checked out. When this happens you should remember that there are always great books you can use in the Reference section that can’t leave the library (see the Reference Works page in this guide).

Google Books

GoogleBooks can be used to search the content of many books.

Some books are available in full text; many are not full text in GoogleBooks -- but might be found in the library catalog or obtained via interlibrary loan.
