What is a library catalog?

A library catalog, or OPAC - online public access catalog*, is a database of materials held by the library. Use the OPAC to find books, journals, and DVDs (and some other formats) in the library's collection.

Course reserves can also be found in the library catalog under the Course Reserve tab.

Looking for an article? Use Summon, or select and search one of the research databases.

Search the library catalog by author, title, subject, journal title, and call number. Some materials may be renewed online. Help screens are available for most functions. With a few exceptions, the catalog contains full information on the libraries’ holdings. Please tell a library staff member about any inaccuracies or discrepancies.

*Online access is provided through the Voyager integrated library system from ExLibris Ltd., a ProQuest Company.

Call numbers

Most of the printed materials in the library are shelved by Library of Congress call number. Library of Congress call numbers give each book a unique identifier, assuring it a particular place on the shelves. Call numbers also help group items by subject.
