Library: Find Books

Find Books

The Wright Institute Library's 6500 item book collection supports the classroom and research needs of the Wright Institute community.  With the exception of reference material, most books can be checked out by Institute students and faculty for a period of two weeks.  The library also holds copies of all course readers and all books that are required or recommended reading for current courses.  These items are kept on two-hour reserve, and can be found in the library office. 

Search our new online catalog here

This new catalog is fully functional as of July 2009.  To find our collection of eBooks from Springer and PEP, use the catalog's advanced search, select eBook as a limiter, and click search.

If you don’t find what you need in our collection, the next step is to search UC Berkeley’s collections.  We are very fortunate to be next door to one of the largest academic libraries in the world, with one of the finest psychology collections anywhere, and all of our students are entitled to free library cards at UC Berkeley.  Search UC Berkeley’s Oskicat online catalog.

If something you need is also not available at UC Berkeley, the library can attempt to borrow it for you through Interlibrary Loan.

During library hours, please place returned books on the cart next to the library office.  After hours, books may be returned using the book drop located around the corner from the library door.
