Information Studies for the Online MLS iSchool Students

Writing a paper? Looking for books or articles? Need help citing your sources? This guide can help!

Start Your Book Search Right Here

Use the Classic Catalog (remember the Classic Catalog is limited to materials at McKeldin Library).  For a more fruitful search use Worldcat to search for books, journal titles, government documents, nonprint media, and other materials owned by the UM Libraries. Check the box for "USMAI (All Campuses)" in order to search the entire UM System at once. For best results, use the Library of Congress Subject Headings (viewable within individual records or by using the "Subject Beginning with..." search).Some examples of subject headings in library and information studies are:

Information behavior
Human-Computer Interaction
Information Services
Information Retrieval
Information Literacy
Information Management
Information Technology
Information Networks
Information Organization
Information Policy
Information Processing
Information Resources Management

School Libraries

The search box below will open the Catalog and launch your search in a new window.
