Lewis Honors College: Books

Resource for students in the Lewis Honors College

Introduction

UK Libraries has a rich collection of print and electronic books with over 4 million total library holdings. Below are links for searching for them via InfoKat Discovery. If we don't own a book you need, we can often borrow it for you via Interlibrary Loan from another library.

Introduction to InfoKat Discovery

InfoKat Discovery can be a good place to start your research, as you can search for all types of information there (articles, books, and much more).

If you search InfoKat Discovery as the "Library Catalog," it will help you find library materials UK owns, such as books, videos, maps, music, and much more.

The InfoKat Discovery Guide is extremely helpful for learning how to use this powerful tool.
