Occupational Therapy: Books

Use the following guide to locate print and electronic resources in Occupational Therapy at the College of St. Scholastica Library.

Subject Searching

One of the most effective ways of tapping into library catalogs is to search on the subject headings which are assigned to works in your field. The CSS Library and most other academic libraries use Library of Congress Subject Headings. These headings are found in the familiar (and monstrous) red books that are often seen near the reference desks in many libraries.

Listed below, are some of the chief headings which are assigned to works in Occupational Therapy. By following the links, you will execute a search in our local catalog and see some of the works which have been assigned each heading. In the search results, you will notice that the most recent publications have been listed first.

Books and eBooks

We can borrow print books for you from other libraries through our InterLibrary Loan (ILL) service. eBook lending is not possible due to publisher's restrictions, but the library world has negotiated the ability for you to request a chapter from an eBook.

MnPALs has ILL integrated into the system making it easy to borrow a book from another library with just a few clicks.

WorldCAT allows you to search for library books nationally. You will need to manually create an ILL request. Follow the link.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

How does it work?
