HIST 150: History Through Objects: The Atlantic World

Finding Books at W&M

The W&M Library looks small from outside, but the collection of books is massive (part of the library is underground, and we use high-density shelving).

Sample search:

"colonial Williamsburg" AND printing

Accessing books outside of the main library

The entire CW library collection is reflected in our catalog. Any of these items not held in special collections can be requested and picked up here on campus. Use the REQUEST button.

Pay attention to Chapters!

For many topics, you will not find full books, but you will find chapters.

Open book records to see why they are in the results list, and keep an eye open for chapters.
