Education Policy, Organization and Leadership 590-BB3: Student Protests & Higher Education: Find Books

This guide provides resources to help students in EPOL or EPS 590-BB3 find information about student activism in recent times.

Finding Books

Look here to find books, magazines or journals containing articles that you need, videos, and many other resources. In addition to the 15 million volumes we have on this campus, you can connect to over 90 other libraries in Illinois thought the I-Share Collection, and request books be sent to the Main Library where you can pick them up.

NOTE: During this time of COVID-19, we are recommending that our library patrons use electronic books as much as possible.  Please see this guide:

Search the catalog using keywords or phrases such as:
    student protests in higher education
    college student activism
    student activism

Hint: Retrieve more precise results by putting quotation marks around a phrase, e.g., "campus unrest"

Use Interlibrary Loan to request materials that are not owned by the University of Illinois Library and when you cannot find a copy in I-Share.  NOTE: Interlibrary loan for print books can take several weeks.  

Below you will find some examples of e-books in the University of Illinois Library catalog on various aspects of student protest in higher education.
