Trans-Border Institute: Finding Books

Welcome to the LibGuide for the Trans-Border Institute (TBI). Here you will find databases and other resources (print and online) to help you with your research on Mexican and Latin American politics, history, economics, and culture.

Find Books at USD

Search our Catalog

Request Books From Other Libraries

If a book is not available at the USD Libraries you have two options:

Request your book from the San Diego Circuit (the combined catalog for USD, SDSU, UCSD, CSU San Marcos and San Diego County Public Libraries). If you find the book you need in the Circuit you can simply make an online request and have the book delivered to Copley Library.                   

If the book is not available through the Circuit, use our Interlibrary Loan service. It will process your request and borrow the book you need from participating libraries worldwide.
