HONR 291: Race and Ethnicity in Ancient Greece and Rome: Finding Books

Search for Books

To find books, search DELCAT Discovery, the online catalog of the University of Delaware Library.

Search DELCAT Discovery to Find Library Resources

Search DELCAT Discovery to find library resources related to your research topic. Users can limit searches to books, journals and other items held by the University of Delaware Library or search the entire WorldCat database that encompasses millions of titles in libraries throughout the world.

UD items appear at or near the top of the results display. Material not held by the Library (labeled WorldCat Libraries) can be requested via a link that automatically generates an interlibrary loan request form.

At this time, call number browsing is available from the Call Number Browse web page.

Search Tips

  • Place quotation marks around keyword phrases (e.g., "rom* forum" or "journal of Roman archaeology").
  • Using the truncation symbol (*) is a useful feature in DELCAT and other databases. For example, type rom* to find Rome, Roman, Romanesque; type paint* to find paint, paintings, painted, painter, etc.
  • It is important to click either "View all formats and languages" or "View all editions" to obtain complete information about library holdings. Both links connect to the same page.
  • Use Advanced Search when you want to construct a more specific search.
