How to Find a Book

When searching for resources there are several options for accessing information. The following is a tutorial for finding books, eBooks, DVDs, Blu-Rays, and streaming videos.

Searching the Library Catalogue 

Our catalogue can be accessed via the Books/Videos tab in our blue search bar. This is found on the home page, and on all Program Guides. Here you will find all our books (print and electronic) as well as our videos (DVD and streaming).

Key in your search term(s) and if desired, select from the buttons at the bottom whether you would like to search as a Keyword, Author, Title or Subject. Hit the Search button.  


Browse the search results and click on the title you wish to view for details.

Please note: anything with a green “Click for online access” button is an eResource. (eBook or streaming video)  


Take note of the call number: QL 61 .A86 2018 and the Location; if there is a Due Date indicated that means that item is already checked out. 


Any item listed as being located in the “Top Floor Stacks” means it’s a circulating item and can be found on the 3rd floor of the library. Look for the call number range cards at the ends of each row. 

Note: the books are arranged on the shelf from left to right, top to bottom. 

Look for the Call Number sticker on the bottom of the book’s spine. 

Once you have found your item you can sign it out at the circulation desk found on the first floor of the library. You must have your student card to sign items out.
