Searching the Catalogue
The catalogue is your primary tool for finding books in the J.N. Desmarais Library and other campus libraries.
You can also use the catalogue to find other materials, including government publications and journals (the journals themselves--not individual articles).
You can search the catalogue by:
- Journal Title
When you know the book you are searching for, pick Title or Author; when you are searching for a topic, start with Keyword unless you know the exact Subject heading describing your topic.
More on searching the Catalogue is available in Module 5 of the Research Skills Tutorial in D2L.
Need a book or an article that we don't have? Interlibrary is here to help!
Materials that are not available at our University are obtained from other libraries and shipped to Laurentian.
