Book Searches

To search for a book:

  2. If you are searching for a specific book, enter the title into the Quick Search box. If you want books on a topic, enter the topic into the Quick Search box.
  3. Using the limiters on the left-hand side, select Books located under Material Type. You may need to select Show More to see books.
  4. If you are looking for a specific book, and you don't see it, use the box on the left to Expand My Results. If you find your book, you'll probably need to click Request it to obtain it through Cline Library's Document Delivery Service. It usually takes a week or two to arrive, sometimes longer.
  5. If you only want to see what is currently available in the library, click Available in Library under View Only
