Finding Books & Media

To find books and media that our library owns, use the Books & Media tab on our homepage, or search for everything with the Search All option.

Start with one or two keywords, adding quotation marks ("") around concepts with more than one word like the example above. Quotes are not needed for single words, such as education or communication. 

Refine your results using the limits on the left side of the results page.  You may see a lot of non-book items, so be sure to limit the Resource Type category to Books, if that's what you're looking for.

When you've found a book (or ebook!) that looks interesting, click the title to learn more about it, or (if it's Available), write down the location and call number and head to the shelves to get it! 

Narrow your results using the limits on the left side of the results page.

When you've found a book that looks interesting, write down the location and call number and head to the shelves. If you limit results to Books-Available online you will see a link to click on to view the ebook online.
