To find these books, try two different searches:

        Search One

  •           Go to the Advanced option of OneSearch
  •            Use the pull down arrow to select Subject and type in your discipline.  Example:  Nursing.
  •            Use the pull down arrow to select Subject and type in writing.
  •            Look to the left and click on Books under Refine my Results to see a list of accessable online and print books.

         Tip!         To find the most recent books, look to the top of the list, where the screen says Sorted By.  Change Relevance to Date Newest.

         Search Two

  •              Use the subject heading, "Communication in your discipline."  Example:  Communication in Engineering.
  •              Look to the left and click on Books under Refine my Results to see a list of accessable online and print books.
