Search the CUNY online catalog to find books, multimedia materials, and other resources.
To find books on a given topic, search by keyword. (If you have a specific title or author you're looking for, you can search those fields in particular.)

From the list of results, click on a title that looks interesting to you.
When you find a book that you think would be good for your paper, click on Lehman College under the "Holdings" heading (or to the right of "Call Number"). This will show you where the book is located in the library:
