How can I limit my search results to find only books?

When you use the library homepage search box, the default option is to search for books and articles, including book reviews.  Once you have searched, it is quite simple to limit the search to only books.  You can do this by clicking the "Books" link that will be located on the left side of the screen under "Source Types" (You may need to click "More" to see the books option.  This will display only books, although some of them will be electronic books.

If the "Books" limiter is not available the library does not own books on that topic.  If this occurs it would be helpful to search on a topic that is a bit more broad, but still related to your original search.
