Find Books

While scholarly journal articles can make excellent sources, do not forget about other sources available through the library. Directly below you will see a box to search the library catalog. You can also go to the library homepage and select the top option (Library Catalog). In addition to print books, the catalog has records for e-books, streaming media, CDs, DVDs, and more.

E-books and streaming media are accessible directly through the link provided in the item's record (under the title, author, etc.).

If you decide to look at a print book, click "Availability" on the right side of the book's record. Note the following pieces of information:

Location -- In what consortium library the book is located.

Call Number – Where to find the book on the shelf -- floor and specific location

Status – Checked in (should be here) or Checked out (someone already has it)
