Find Books That Exist:
- OneSearch includes citation records for millions of books and ebooks, including those that Robertson Library owns, but many more as well. Use Interlibrary Loan to request books the Library does not own.
- Other PEI Libraries:
- Other Canadian Libraries: Search Amicus to search across most Canadian libraries (warning, UPEI's own holdings in this database are not up to date).
- U.S. and Other World Libraries: Search WorldCat to search across most US libraries, many Canadian libraries, and several other included countries. Also includes in search results a large citation-only article index, a US government document index, and a conference papers/proceedings index.
- Google Book Search: allows you to keyword search the full text of over 10 million books. Books out of copyright may be read entirely online - others will give you only a snippet or other tiny portion; use Interlibrary Loan to borrow a print copy of a book you find in GBS that UPEI does not own. Our Catalogue provides this functionality in a "Preview" tab if content is available for a book.
