The Library Catalog

The library catalog includes a record for everything we have -- the library "holdings." "Everything" includes books, ebooks, streaming media, dvds, maps, microforms, archival materials, newspapers, journals* and more.

*Note: The catalog does not include individual journal and newspaper articles. To find articles, search the library's subject Databases.
