If you're not interested in ebooks, you may want to search our catalog (aka OPAC, or Online Public Access Catalog) of physical materials in the library. To access the catalog, select "Books" from the "Find" menu.
From here, you're directed to our catalog, where you can search by words or phrase, author, title, subject or series. Be very mindful of your spelling. Our catalog won't correct you, and a misspelling may result in no hits.
If you find a book that looks promising, click the title link to view more details and complete availability information. The call number corresponds to the book's subject classification, and you will need this number to locate the book on the shelf. The location is also important. Here are some common locations:
Keep in mind that the Library catalog is more finicky than One Search. You can search by words or phrase, author, title, subject or series. Enter your search terms and click the appropriate button. Do not attempt to search multiple fields at once, e.g. a combination title/author search. You will not get good results. For example, a search for "part-time indian alexie" yields no results even though we do in fact carry the book The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie.
If you wish to search multiple fields at once, click the Power Search link search instead.
