Use what we call the Catalog to search the Library's physical and digital collections. The catalog helps you locate books and e-books, videos, articles, and streaming media available in the Library or online using your Library card. The catalog can also be used to search collections at our partner academic libraries throughout Illinois and the United States.
Begin by doing a simple keyword search for your topic, an author, or title. You can then refine results by material type or location.
To learn more about using the catalog, see our Using the Catalog guide.
