Looking books helps you not only to find original texts but also to find collections of critical essays about these texts.
To find books at the Gordon Library, type your keywords into Summon (the ALL search box on the library homepage), and then use the Books/eBooks filter on the left to limit your search results to just books.
When you find a helpful book in the Gordon Library Online Catalog, click on the Subject Headings associated with that book to find more books on the same topic.
In the example below, if we click on the subject heading Eliot, T. S. (Thomas Stearns), 1888-1965--Criticism and interpretation, we will find more books containing literary criticism of T. S. Eliot's work.
Our Interlibrary Loan service allows WPI students and faculty to request items from other libraries free of charge.
The Academic and Research Collaborative (ARC), allows member users to borrow directly from Worcester area libraries. Before you can borrow materials directly from participating libraries, you need to sign up for an ARC card in person at the Gordon Library's Information Desk. Pick up your ARC today!
