If you're feeling stuck, feel free to reach out to me (contact information to the left) or use our Ask A Librarian service to get in touch with librarians from across the University.
How to Start Searching Anywhere
Bonus: The suggestions here work in most search engines - including the Libraries and Google

When you're just starting out, you may find the process confusing, but it will get easier!
Suggested Starting Points
Aside from typing keywords into the search bar on the homepage, take a look through some of these and see if they're helpful!
The following are lists of books that are available through the Penn State Libraries. Use the filters on the left as needed to look for specific locations or dates, and adjust the keywords to narrow down the results.
These are not comprehensive lists and additional searching may be necessary!
