Yes, we do. For books only, I recommend using the library catalog web site ( It will be easier to sort things out there than using OneSearch. Options:

1) Under the search box on the catalog home page, click "Power Search".
2) Type coffee and click the dropdown options to subject.

This will perform a Subject Keyword search and will look for coffee in all of the Subject fields only. This gets you 46 results. I would also add that we have a new academic video streaming service that is now available (2015). One of the items on the result list a academic video on the history of coffee from Ambrose Video, which I recommend. This offers unique option to potential to maybe add this to your assignment!

Since we don't have a lot, you can also go to or on your cell phone. We get all of our cataloging records from the company that created this web site. Go there and do a subject search for coffee and history. Click or tap any title and click/tap Find in Library. Input your zip code (77074 for HBU). The site will show you libraries with that book starting with the nearest one to your zip code. You can come to the library Reference Desk and show us your ID card and we can get you a TexShare card. Most of the area libraries participate in the TexShare program except Rice University. If you have something you want from Rice, then talk with the librarian about how to get books from  there (you can!).

That should get you rolling!
