Libraries are traditionally known for their book collections. Books are not going away anytime soon, but the format and methods of accessing them are changing.
Do not be afraid to use books! A 400-page text might seem daunting, but, unless specifically stated in your assignment, it is not always necessary to read a book in its entirety for your research. Books cover broad areas, and a single chapter or section may provide sufficient information.
eBooks: the Sac State library subscribes to a number of ebook-specific databases and databases that offer ebooks in addition to other content. By default, eBooks are searched alongside physical books in OneSearch; you will see a direct link to the book in its listing.
Physical books: In order to make space for new technology and work spaces, many academic libraries are removing rarely used items from their physical collections. This means that the item you are looking for may only be available through another library. Please see tab in this guide on borrowing a book from another library for more information.
There are books in numerous collections and locations in the library.
General fiction and non-fiction books
We focus on having books on topics relating to subjects and fields of study taught at Sac State.
