To search for textbooks you will want to use the Advanced Search screen in the Library Catalog. You can use the drop-down box to search by title, author, or ISBN. When you search a title, make sure you leave off beginning articles such as "the", "an", "a", etc. If you search by author, search by last name. If you search by ISBN, do not include any dashes, use only numbers. You may combine multiple fields, such as searching by title AND author at the same time. If you find your book, look at the publication date and/or edition statement in the Catalog record to see if it is the same edition that is being used by your instructor. Books are shelved in call number order. Click here for a Library map.
