Search and Find Books

Search the Catalog

To search the library's catalog, try the WorldCat Discovery search box found on the Library home page.

The catalog will search all of the physical books, journals, and media available in Preus Library, as well as the article databases that we have access to. Because libraries share resources, the catalog will also search the holdings of other libraries.

A series of brief tutorials on searching WorldCat Discovery is available from OCLC, the company that created and supports our catalog.

Advanced Search

Advanced Search lets you combine search terms and apply filters to create complex searches and limit your search results.

Visit the WorldCat Discovery Support Site for a tutorial on using the Advanced Search interface.
