LIUCAT Search Tips:

Click on the Basic tab to search for a single keyword.
Click on the Advanced tab to search for multiple keywords.
Click on the List A-Z tab to search for an exact title, author, or subject.
Write down the Collection and Call Number of any book you would like to view.
If no results - Check your spelling.
If we do not have the title you want, request it via InterLibrary Loan (allow 7-14 days for delivery).
If you must get a book immediately, ask the Reference Librarian to help you check other libraries in the area. The Reference Librarian can provide access to other academic libraries via an ALB or METRO card.
ASK For HELP. The Reference Desk is staffed by a Faculty Librarian during all hours that the library is open.
