InfoHawk+ searches our physical materials (books, DVDs, etc.). It's the tool you need to use to find a book on the shelf, or an e-book online. Books are only part of what it can find.
It will also search a wide range of electronic resources, including Iowa Research Online, selected major databases in a diverse set of academic disciplines, and items unique to the UI Libraries like those in our Iowa Digital Collections.
InfoHawk+ searches our catalog for UI Library books and other material and also searches other sources including databases and online archives.
When you locate a book in InfoHawk+, you'll need to take note of a few things in order to find it in the Library.
How to locate a book by it's call number
When you are looking for a print book in our libraries, always start with the beginning of the call number. Books are arranged alphabetically starting with this. For example, all PR call numbers are together, after PP and before PS, and all P’s come after all combinations of N and before all combinations of Q, like this:
P, PA, PB . . . PP, PR, PS . . . Q, QA, QB
When books have identical letter combinations, look to the number line next. Books are ordered using whole numbers on this part. For example:
PR1 PR206 PR1056 PR6037 PR6209
When the beginning combinations of letters and numbers are identical, next look at the part after the decimal point. Books are first ordered alphabetically and then arranged by decimal number (not whole number.) The following call numbers are in correct order:
PR6037.A47 PR6037.A8 PR6037.A86 PR6037.E222
If there are more letters and numbers that follow, repeat the pattern of looking at the letters alphabetically, and the numbers as a decimal number.
