Search for print books, ebooks, and videos available at the library and online.

Use filters on the left to limit by specific source type, date range, and more.

Wondering what to type in the search box? Search broad keywords associated with your topic such as:

  • photography
  • history of photography
  • photographer's name "Ansel Adams"

Your search will generate a list of records from the library catalog. Use call #s to find books on the shelf; ebooks can be opened directly from the catalog.

The record will also tell you if the book is in the Main Collection, Reference, or with Oversized Books (art books can be big!).
