In-depth and introductory material may be found in online and print books on a variety of topics. Books take much longer to write (and read) and are designed for in-depth explanations of entire fields and larger issues. Use Library Search or the box below to find print and electronic books in Rowan's collection.
Subject headings are descriptions of the content of library materials using precise language. You can click on them in a relevant catalog record or search for them in advanced searches. Note that for film, the term that is usually used is "motion picture," although certain genres use the term "film," like "comedy films."
