WorldCat allows you to discover materials at Tulane University AND in libraries worldwide. View local holdings or borrow from U.S. libraries using Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Two different interfaces, the first a more in-depth option via subscription (FirstSearch, via the Tulane University icon link), and the second open-access (WorldCat Local, via the orange OA icon) offer unique user experiences.
Use Google Books to do a full-text search of books in their database. If you find something you want, copy the title into Library Search and see if it's available. If not, order it through Interlibrary Loan (ILLIAD)
SYNTHESIS is an information service for the research, development and educational communities in engineering and computer science. The basic component of the library are 50- to 100-page electronic books that synthesizes an important research or development topic, authored by a prominent contributor to the field. Called "Lectures," these texts offer more synthesis, analysis, and depth than typical research journal articles. "Lectures" are further organized by series (a collection of lectures) each managed by a prominent consulting editor. The series editor oversees lecture topic and author selection as well as peer review to assure quality.
