Public Health and Health Disparities Research: Finding Books & e-Books

This guide will cover public health issues and the elimination of health disparities.

Searching for Books



Books in the library are organized according to the Library of Congress system, which means books are organized according to subject and labeled with a call number.  Call numbers are arranged alphabetically then numerically.

To find books or other materials held physically within the library, please search the catalog for the item's availability and shelf location. 

If Lyman Beecher Brooks does not own an item you need for research, teaching or study, you may request it through the Interlibrary Loan service. This free service allows users to borrow materials from other libraries and receive them electronically through their Tipasa accounts. Sign into your Tipasa account here to submit your request
