The library provides access to millions of e-books, including quite a few in the field of Cognitive Science.  Here's how to search for and access these books:

Book Cover: Natural Language Processing

  • Start on the Catalyst Advanced Search page.
  • Under "Field Search," in the "Any Field" box, type in "Cognitive Science" (including quotation marks).
  • Click on the "Format" field and select "Books"--then click on Format again and select "Online."
  • In the date range fields, choose your start date.  If you choose no end date, then Catalyst assumes you want titles up to the latest publication date.
  • Click on the blue "Search" box AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.
  • On the results page, to narrow down your search even more, add words to the search terms (for example: "cognitive science" linguistics).
