Finding a Book in the Library

The Online Library Catalog allows you to search for books, ebooks, CDs, and DVDs. 

Once you have located the book you want in the catalog, you will need the following information: 

Status of Item

  • Not Charged = Available
  • Charged = Currently Checked Out

Location (Call Number)

  • A-HN 2nd floor, HQ-Z 3rd floor
  • All books located in the Reference Collection will be on the 2nd floor

Still can't find it? Come to the reference desk and ask the librarian for assistance. 

Checking Out Books in the Library

You will need your student ID number (900 number) to check out library materials. Simply take your materials to the circulation desk (pictured above) for checkout.
