    Search for measures included in books. Instructions at this website are out of date: but if you search the big box at UTA Libraries carefully with TMdb as a keyword, you will find results at the bottom of the page in the "UTA Libraries Website" section. If you find something interesting, open a new browser window to the BU Libraries home page and search for that book title (not the test title) in BU Libraries Search to see if we have print or online access to it.
