Even in the Digital Age, books are still the major publication format for academic historians. In fact, journal articles are frequently the precursor to full-length books. Here are some tips on how to use books more effectively in your research:
Ready to expand your search beyond Howard-Tilton? Use the WorldCat database to search for books, journal titles, audio, video, and other materials in libraries across the country and around the world. Use InterLibrary Loan (ILL) to borrow items from other libraries!
If Tulane does not have a book you need in it's collection, please register to use the library's Interlibrary Loan service ILLiad.
ILLiad allows students, faculty, and staff of Tulane University to place Interlibrary Loan requests for materials from outside universities quickly and efficiently. Through ILLiad you can also renew, track, edit, and view the history of your requests.
Although it can take as little as a few days to receive an ILL request, please allow 10-14 days. Dissertations, theses and other rare or hard to find items may take longer or be unavailable.
