Finding Books & Media at the Cheng Library

The library has over 450,000 items available for your use, including books and video and audio materials.  A growing number of our books and videos are availble online, making it easier than ever to get access to great information.

To find books and media that our library owns, use the Classic Catalog link on our homepage. For more options, try the WorldCat union catalog.

Start with one or two keywords, adding quotation marks ("") around concepts with more than one word: for example, "African American" or "college students"... quotes are not needed for single words, such as crime or drugs.

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

When you've found a book 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!
