Searching the catalog for a book


A book can be searched for by title, author, subject, or keyword.   This link takes you to the online catalog.

Stack guide


Find a book in the computer catalog.
Look for the 'Library Location' to see in what collection the book is located.
3. If 
the book is in the 'General Collection', look at the first letter of the call number to find out which floor the book is on.
If the book is in a different Library Location than the General Collection, go to the floor on which that collection is located.
