EBooks

The Robert R. Muntz Library offers thousands of books, available in print and electronic formats. If you know you're specifically looking for books, use Advanced Search to narrow your topic by material type. 

Circulating print books (ones you can check out) are available in the 3rd floor stacks, to the right when you go up the stairs. If you'd like to browse, we do use the Library of Congress Classification system, and there is a poster with an outline of the subjects by letter on the 3rd floor. Most of the books on education will fall in Class L. Specific areas of study are LC (Special Education). The library does carry reference, or books that can't be checked out, on the 2nd floor.

Our eBooks are spread over many collections and unfortunately, few of the providers seem to agree on a way to provide electronic content for libraries. You can do a search in our main search box (See: Books, Articles & More tab), or look in specific eBook collections. The best bets for eBooks are:

Some publishers allow you to discover books from their collection that UT Tyler does not own. If you come across such a title, please contact your librarian to see if we can purchase the book, or if we can get it for you through Interlibrary Loan.

Reference Ebooks

This is a selection of reference ebooks relevant to education.  They provide information on theories, concepts, definitions, statistics, etc.  They come from our subscription-based ebook collections.  Reminder:  If you are trying to access these ebooks outside of campus, you will be prompted to log in.

WorldCat

WorldCat is the ultimate catalog containing information about library holdings all over the world. If you cannot find the material you need in the UT Tyler Catalog, try WorldCat.

If you are a distance student, you can have both our print books and books from other libraries delivered to your house. Just use InterLibrary Loan.
