Computer Science: Finding Books

This guide describes ways to find information about computer science using resources available at the University of Regina.

Books at the University of Regina

Searching for Books

Use Quick Find to find books (including e-books) at the University of Regina Library, Campion College Library, Luther College Library, First Nations University Library, and online.

Quick Find offers two search modes: Basic Search and Advanced Search.

  • In Basic Search, you initiate a search by entering keywords. When you get a list of search results, look for Resource Types to the left of the list, and click on the word Books under it. This leaves only books in your search results.
  • In Advanced Search you have options when you enter your keywords, such as limiting the search to a specific field (e.g. title, author, ISBN). You can limit your search results to books by selecting books from the Material Type menu, or by using the same method as is used in Basic Search (described above).

Tip for students, faculty, and staff not based at the Regina campus: You can request any print book through UREAD.

Books at Other Libraries

There are many computer science books that are not owned by the University of Regina Library. You may request any book that is not owned by the U of R via Interlibrary Loan (or UREAD if you are a distance education student, or a faculty or staff member not based at the Regina campus).

Here are some resources to identify books not owned by the U of R:
