What is the library catalog?
The library catalog is a robust system comprised of the many resources that the library has access to in both print and electronic format. You can find print books, e-books, and even rare books in the library catalog. Other materials you'll find include journals, e-journals, videos, and course reserves.

*A special note about journals/e-journals: If you are looking for a specific journal/e-journal article it is best to use library databases such as PubMedOvidCINAHL, and Scopus. If you are looking for the title of a specific journal/e-journal you can search the catalog.
