Search the library’s catalog? Go back to the home page for the library (, and there’s 3 ways to access the library’s catalog online:

  1. At the top of the page here is a search bar that says “search the catalog”. Place your cursor there and type in a title or author you’d like to find. Press either “enter” or click the magnifying glass at the end of the bar, and it will take you to the catalog and your search results.
  2. Another place to find the catalog is in the drop down menu. Hover your cursor over “using the library” and scroll to and click “search the catalog”. This will bring you directly to the catalog, where you can begin your search.
  3. One more place on the homepage where you can access the catalog is beneath the sliding banner where there are blocks labeled “catalog”, “your account”, “e-books”, and so on. Click onto the “catalog” block and that will take you to the catalog.

If you need tips to refine your searches or are experiencing difficulty, please call us for assistance, or sign up for your own one-on-one session with one of our librarians who will show you all you need to know. Simply fill out this google form and we’ll schedule an appointment:
