Library Orientation: Finding Books

Basic introduction to library resources

Search the UI Libraries' Catalog


  • Use the library catalog to find books and journls the library owns. Use a Research Database to find individual articles on your topic.
  • The library has material in many formats: Print and electronic books, government publications and reports, journals, theses, and more.
  • Know when to use the UI library and when to use your local public library


InfoHawk+ searches our catalog for UI Library books and other material and also searches other sources including databases and online archives.
