Economics: Books

Discovery Search

Search for books, eBooks, DVDs, and other physical materials housed within Lucy Scribner Library.  This search will search our catalog and many library databases, so you must use the Source Type filter (under All Filters) to limit to the type of source you want like Books and eBooks.


Use WorldCat to search libraries across the country and world to find and request books using Interlibrary Loan (ILL) (5-8 business day delivery time).

Request Book Chapters

While books are physically sent to the library, a book chapter can be requested and is sent electronically as a PDF. If you only need a single chapter from a book, use the "Book Chapter" form in your ILL account. You'll have access to the PDF within 1-3 business days.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Sign up for ILL to request books from other institutions (5-8 business day delivery time).

Ebooks Search

Search for eBooks from all of our collections in a single search.


Where's My Book?
Most books in Economics will be located on the 2nd floor of the library. 
  • HB - Economic Theory and Demography
  • HC - Economic History and conditions

If you're searching for a particular book, check the catalog.  Since Economics can be interdisciplinary, your book may be located in a different subject area.
