Library Catalog

A library catalog is a searchable collection of records of every item in a library. The catalog will point you to the location of a particular source, or group of sources, that the library owns on your topic. Since every library collection is unique, every catalog is also unique.

Use the Catalog

  • to find out what items the library owns on your topic
  • to find where a specific item is located in the library
Library catalogs are usually found on a library's web site under the heading like Online Catalog or Find Books.
