HOW TO FIND BOOKS IN THE LIBRARY! (THE SLIDE SHOW) love, YOUR LIBRARIAN

Also, check the Library of Congress Classifcation Outline to better understand the library's organizational system (i.e., which books are located where. Call numbers for specific books can be found by using the library catalog, searchable at right).

OneSearch

The difference between searching the library catalog (left) and One Search (below) is that One Search pulls in results from databases, such as journal articles, news, etc., as well as materials that the library has purchased, such as books, DVDs, print journals, etc  (i.e., the Library Catalog).  An important note: some ebooks will only show up in One Search, so if you are not seeing an ebook in the library catalog that you want to review, also try One Search.
