This is a library guide for Professor Seaman's first-year seminar.

Finding books (and more!) using WorldCat Discovery

To find books (and book chapters) use DePauw's Discovery search.


The screencast below describes how to limit to e-books in WorldCat Discovery. 

If you're taking classes and/or living on campus, you can request books be pulled for you, via our contactless pickup system. 

If you're off-campus and you need just a chapter of a book that we have in print - just email me at and I'll see if we can get a scan of it (if it's not checked out).

NOTE: there is no interlibrary loan (ILL) of books available in Fall 2020, whether you're on or off-campus.
