To search for a book you can use BearCat. Our xatalog is web based and can be searched from home or any place you have access to the Internet. After you find the book you are looking for you will want to find the location and the Call Number for the book and also check to make sure that it is available to be borrowed.  Do this by clicking on the "is it here?" link in your results list or the "check circulation status" link in a full record display.  

For example, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is in the Crumb Stacks at call number PR4034 .P7 2001. 

BearCat includes material in three campus locations:  Crumb is our main library and there is also Crane Library in Schuette Hall and the Sheard Literacy Center in Satterlee Hall.  Within each library there are specific locations for material such as Crumb Stacks, Crane Reference, etc.  If you need help finding material, please ask the staff at the Circulation Desks for assistance.

If we cannot find a book that should be available, ask us to initiate a search.  When we find it we'll let you know and hold the book for you.  If we cannot locate it quickly and you can ask for an Interlibrary Loan.
