You can do a simple search of the library catalog directly from the box above.  

  • Decide what type of search you would like to do (author, title, subject)
  • If you KNOW (for certain), the title or author, type in the FIND box, then hit the appropriate button.
  • If you want to search for a book about a subject, but don't know of a specific title within that subject area, try a SUBJECT search first. If you would like a fictional treatment of that subject, try a subject search adding the word fiction.
  • If these searches aren't successful, try a keyword search with any words from the title, author, or subject that you are certain of.
