Books are one of the key types of resource you should be looking at for assignments and learning. We have thousands of physical books in the Library, but possibly even more online. To find them, you can search Discover (the Library's tool full of books and lots of the journal article content we have) and then filter to select that you want the Source Type of books and/or ebooks:

When the book is a physical book the record will tell you where you can find the book (by shelf mark, e.g. 822.33 SHA) and if it's an ebook there will be a link to the full text of the book. You might need to log in to the ebook platform with your QMU username and password.
