Find Print Books in DC
Can I get print books in Washington DC?
You can't have books shipped from your UC Library, unfortunately.
You do have access to academic and professional libraries in DC, though in most cases you will need to read or scan the books in-person, and will not have any check-out privileges:
- The Library of Congress (LOC) is open to the public, though you can only use their materials in-person (no check outs). Take a look their Getting Started Guide.
- Search across DC libraries in Melvyl: You can use the UC Melvyl (WorldCat) library catalog to search "Libraries worldwide" and find items in libraries near you in Washington DC.
- You can access collections from many academic libraries in the DC area, including:
- Don't forget to see if your Internship site has a library collection of their own!
