Finding Books

Search the Library Catalog to find books available in print and online. BTW, your search will also retrieve other types of materials, such as journals, videos, music recordings, maps, etc.

Here are some tips:

  • Use Advanced Search, if you are looking for a specific title, author, subject, date or language.

  • Use quotation marks to search for exact phrases, e.g. “Cuban literature”.

  • Use AND (in all-caps) to ensure that both terms are in the results, or OR (in all-caps) tom ensure that one or the other term may be in the results.  


If you don't find what you need, try the WorldCat to find books and other materials available at many other libraries world-wide. Books owned by U-M are identified, and it is easy to place an interlibrary loan request for the materials we don't own directly from the WorldCat record.
