As a 3rd and 4th year student, you will be enrolled at CU Boulder and will have access to all of the CU Boulder Libraries online resources, including ebook, electronic articles, and many other electronic resources.  To access all of these resources, start on the libraries' homepage:

The homepage has a big search box called OneSearch, which searches most of the libraries content.  Through OneSearch, you can find books and ebooks, journal articles, conference proceedings, standards, and more.  When you want the full text of an ebook or article, you'll need to type in your identikey and password, and then you can read the ebook or article.  

For print books, if you find one that you want when searching OneSearch, check Tomlinson Library's catalog for the book first.  If the print book you are looking for is not available through Tomlinson Library, you can request it from libraries' across Colorado and Wyoming (including CU Boulder!) through Prospector.
