Use WorldCat (the Library Catalog) - to locate books, both printed and ebooks. WorldCat will also link you to videos, articles, and many other types of information.
WorldCat can be searched from the Library Home Page. Use the tabs across the top to narrow your results if you know what type of format you need. Do you need a current magazine or journal article? Do you need to find a book or a video? Or you can just search everything.

Our catalog also includes a cite/export ink in the top left corner of each record. By clicking on the link, you will have the citation created for you to use in bibliographies or works cited pages.
Our library catalog, WorldCat Local is full of new features that will greatly improve your ability to search for all formats and types of materials, then access them all immediately. It includes all of the physical items we own and access to online resources.
