How Can I Use Books and Media?


For your assignments, you may need to use books for background research or to support your ideas and analyses. Remember that you may not always need to read the entire book - sometimes, just one or two chapters will give you all the information you need.


eBooks are exactly the same as hard copy books in terms of content and the way you would use them, but the difference is you can access them online! If you do a catalogue search in the box on the right or from the Library's Website, your results will automatically include eBooks. We actually have more eBooks at CapU than we do hard copy!


The CapU Library also has many DVDs, including documentaries. When you search the CapU Library catalogue using the box to the right, or from the main Library Website, you will automatically get DVDs in your search results. Films can give you great information for your assignments, but always check with your instructor before using them as an official source.
