Library Catalog Results

When you find a book title in the library catalog that you want, check the following:

  • Is it Available or Checked out?
  • Which Campus owns it?   If a book is located at more than one campus, click on "Click to see all copies" to view all campus locations.
  • What is the Call Number?   The Call Number is the book's address, highlighted in green in the screen capture below.  Write down the whole Call Number (e.g., QA155 .M33 1997) and use it to find the book on the shelf.

Online/eBooks are also included in the library catalog.  Learn more about viewing eBooks in the library catalog.
