Use  Library Search on the My Ara app to find both print and eBooks on your topic.  Search by keyword, book title or author last name.

To search for alternative spellings, use * in place of missing letters - e.g. Johns*on, colo*r, design*

To search as a phrase rather than separate words use "  " around your phrase i.e. "climate change".
