To begin your library search, go to the library home page and enter terms into the search box.
The initial list of results in library search is the Books+ tab which includes books, ebooks, CDs, DVDs, online videos, government documents, dissertations and more.
In the Articles+ tab, you are able to limit your results from the selections under Show Only, such as Peer-reviewed Journals or Full Text Online.
Refine by Topic allows you to choose a more specific area within a broad topic. This will limit results to a subset related to the topic selected.
Physical items, such as books or DVDs, will have a Location and a Call Number. Look for Available at for the item’s location; in these examples, Music & Media for the DVD and Howard-Tilton Stacks for the book. The call number is a combination of letters and numbers which tell you where the book can be found. You’ll also see the floor on which the item is located in the Howard-Tilton Library.
For items in Howard-Tilton Stacks, use the Call Number Floor Guide to determine which floor the book will be shelved:
