First, try our eBooks and eReference resources:

Our e-book collections will also provide online books you can read from home. Try searching any of them with a simple search on the word autism.

Second, try one or more of our library databases. Databases will provide you with access to articles from magazines, journals and newspapers. Below are some recommendations:

Remember that database searches work best when you type in the main nouns or keywords rather than full sentences. If a keyword or phrase is made of two or more words, such as social development, use quotation marks to group those two words together as a phrase. Not sure how to develop keywords or search terms? Click here. Suggested keywords to try in various combinations:

  • autism AND symptoms
  • autism AND causes
  • autism AND virus
