Q. I need help looking for a book.
The Library Catalog allows you to search for books, ebooks, DVDs, CDs and other materials in the Library's collection. (However, the catalog is not the place to go for journals or articles in journals. To find articles, use the search box on the main library page, or one of our specialized databases).
The Basic search screen allows you to select which index you want to search: by title, author, subject, call number or keyword. Look for the search tips listed below the search box.
The Advanced search screen allows you to combine terms using “and", "or", "not”. (Example: entrepreneurship AND global). You can also limit your search by location, date, format, or language.
If you'd like to see a list of our newest additions to the library collection, go to the New books tab of the Library Catalog. There you can choose from 1 to 4 weeks, sort them by call number, author or title and choose how many records per page.
Always check the status of a book to see if it is available for you to check out.
Once you get the call number, here's where you go:
Books with call numbers A through E are located on the third floor.
Books with call numbers F through L are located on the second floor.
Books with call numbers M & N are located on the second floor of the Rotunda.
Books with call numbers P through Z are located on the Rotunda Lower Level.
Reference books (labelled REF) are located on the first floor. Reference books are available for in-library use only.
New Books are on display (loosely) arranged by call number on the Rotunda first floor.
