You can search for materials using a discovery system or the traditional library catalog.

Materials included in a discovery search are:

  • Books
  • eBooks
  • CDs and DVDs
  • Print journals
  • Online journals
  • Database articles
  • Materials that can be requested from other libraries
  • Suggestions for further research

Materials that are searchable in the library catalog are:

  • Books
  • eBooks
  • CDs and DVDs
  • Print journals
  • Online journals

You may choose to search in the traditional library catalog because it returns a set of results which are physically available in the library or can be accessed directly through a link in the bibliographic record.

The library catalog is also the most efficient way to find out if the library has a copy of a specific item by title. To locate an item in the stacks, visit our floor directory.
