Finding Books

You can find books through a variety of ways.  Search our catalog for specific titles, authors, call numbers, subject headings, ISBNs, ISSNs, or access numbers.  Keyword searchers in our catalog are useful when you are looking for something specific.  When you turn up a book you like and want to find similar books, try clicking the hyperlinked subject headings of an individual book's catalog record.  Also, there will probably be books with similar topics shelved near the original book you found. To browse our collection use the general Library of Congress call number ranges linked below.

  1. Search the WU Libraries Catalog. Note the location, call number, and status of the item you're interested in. Refer to the chart below for actions that can be taken for the various statuses.

  2. If the item isn't in the WU Libraries Catalog, search Summit, the Orbis Cascade Alliance union catalog; either directly or from the WU Libraries Catalog. Request the item through Summit.

  3. If you still cannot find the item, request it through our Interlibrary Loan service.

Staus What should I do?
