Search for Books & More in the Library:

In the library catalog, you will find everything the library owns—print books, ebooks, DVDs, streaming audio and video, human anatomy models, kits, and more.

The library catalog is a type of database, so you can use the same search strategies you would use in a database, including "phrase searching," Boolean operators, and truncation.

Additionally, you can browse ebooks on physical therapy topics from EBSCO and eBrary

Periodical List Search

Wondering if the library has a specific journal, and you know the journal's title or have an idea of the title?

Search the Periodical List! 

*Please note you can also search by subject.

If the journal is online, the search results will show a database or a list of databases with years of publication that the journal is available.

The results in the Periodical List will also provide links to the library's catalog that allow you to see if the journal is available in print. If so, see GrADS to find out how to receive an electronic copy of a print article.
